The purpose of this site is to provide the means for discussing all aspects of the AFS Perl API.
AFS is a distributed filesystem product, pioneered at Carnegie Mellon University and supported and developed as a product by Transarc Corporation (later IBM Pittsburgh Labs). It offers a client-server architecture for file sharing, providing location independence, scalability and transparent migration capabilities for data (see also http://wiki.openafs.org/AFSLore/WhatIsAFS/).
The AFS Perl API is a dynamically loadable extension to Perl. It gives the AFS user and administrator access to the AFS programming APIs, allowing to make these calls directly from Perl, rather than processing the output of a command. This API compiles with OpenAFS.
