I documented the current state of Agent Perl in chapter 6 of my book 
(link below).  I did have a student work on some enhancements last year, 
and he was supposed to send his code to Steve Purkis.  I'm not sure if 
he did this, as his efforts were quite disappointing.  Steve had 
indicated that he would like to get the ball rolling again, but also 
stated that he wasn't in a position to dedicate a lot of time to it.

If the Perl Agents web-site is no more, I'd be willing to host it here 
at IT Carlow (assuming the current state of the site - HTML, etc.) can 
be e-mailed to me).
