Well no and yes. THere is Tpm.pm which provides some functionality, but
it is not documented at all and hard to understand, at least for me.

I hacked around TPm.pm quite a lot for getting it to work for the Debian
install scripts.

Then there is tpm-factory.pl which shows the usage of many of the Tpm.pm

That's all. My dream still to see a nice module for tpm files, but I am
not the one to write it, not enough experience with perl ... (although,
after writing the tpm->debian perl script I feeling a bit more

Best wishes
