TWiki is a Content Management System for the web implemented in Perl and targeted towards institutional users, it is unusual amongst the larger CMS's in that is uses plain text files rather than a database to store content. It can be a little fussy to get it working on OS/2 for the first time and was forked in 2008 to FosWiki which has seen much more rapid development than TWiki but maintains compatibility with all TWiki content.
