I’m pleased to announce the release of Box::Calc 1.0, which is an algorithm we’ve been developing for a few years over at The Game Crafter for packing items into boxes. If you run a shipping / receiving operation, or a web store this module can help you determine which box or boxes to use to fit all the items ordered, how much each box will weigh, etc.
Originally we offered Box::Calc as a web service, but now we’re releasing the full module as open source on CPAN. Enjoy!
