in thread Best Perl Module for creating multiple web pages with different information in them?

Seriously, suggesting a word processor over some scripting for this task? IMHO this advice isn't ideal, what if they have to make a change, for example add/edit/remove something, your suggestion would mean editing the files again. This is a maintenance nightmare, and a very time consuming, boring repetitive task, you know, the stuff computers are much better than humans at doing?

Update: fixed typo.

    Heard of "mail merge"?

    package Cow { use Moo; has name => (is => 'lazy', default => sub { 'Mooington' }) } say Cow->new->name

      I take your point, but I'm a firm believer in using the right tool for the job. Some simple CGI scripting could replicate the functionality demonstrated in the example site. IMHO doing it right the first time would be easier than messing around with a word processor should.
