Well, I couldn't even get it installed... I used CPAN module to
install it under my home directory (I don't have root access on this
machine, perl is a bit outdated too, 5.8.5) but it pulls in tons of
other modules and some of them won't install. So I gave up I think.

There is another free product (no perl though),
