Perl XTM: It's dead, Jim!

Perl XTM, the most ancient Perl implementation of Topic Maps has now retired. Or should I say: has been forcefully retired by me as I deleted it from CPAN.

I had started it 2001 when Topic Maps were young and promising, and of course I followed the only thing which was known at that time: the XTM format. Needless to say that this was not very effective.

TM::IP RESTful documents

Last year I extended my Topic Maps implementation into several directions. One was to host also documents as part of a topic map. With such a construct you can do a number of things: Have a fulltext search over the map, have text-to-map transformations, or build graphical map representations.

Now this is all good and well when working with an API and having all local on a box.
