Not for PHP/Perl, but I've copied to the development list for SRW to see
if anyone has done any work in this area.
I seem to recall that Eric Morgan at Notre Dame was using Perl?
Probably the biggest requirement is a CQL parser, of which there's three
OSS implementations (Java, C and Python) and a couple I know of which
aren't released to the public yet including C#.
Perl has a good SOAP module, but I've not recently tried out the SRW WSDL
in it. (It didn't work last time due to document/literal style)
