List of ready installed modules, servers-wide:
Standard modules are not counted to keep this already long list readable enough.
Note That HTML::Mason is installed and runs fine both with and without mod_perl.
In addition, if you know of a stable CPAN module of general interest,
you can suggest our engineering support to install it server-wide.
Local installation in your own account is no problem, and you don't need
to ask us to do it.
You can install MT::* (moveable type) in your account and have mod_perl
handlers configured for it. MT can have security features enabled because
Rootroute uses suexec. (see: moveable type installation manual, configuration
section: "Enable security features").
MT can be with either Berkeley DB, mysql, or postgresql.
SOAP::Lite and other MT optional modules are installed.
