pLauncher – a multi-emulator front-end. It is very configurable and supports every emulator.
pLauncher is a front-end (for Linux) to launch emulators with their roms. It is written in Perl and is licensed under the GPL. The pLauncher user interface was designed with Glade and uses libglade and Gtk-Perl.
It allows you to access all of your emulators and roms. I created pLauncher because I was tired of typing cryptic commands every time I wanted to play a game, and I hated having to use a different front-end for each different emulator.
The original version was actually called eLauncher, and was written in Eiffel. It has since been rewritten in PERL, making it much faster. The rewrite in PERL also makes it easier for others to contribute to the project.
– Small and fast

The project ended in 2001.
