in reply to CGI.pm Disillusionment

OK, I am coming from a PHP background (I can already hear mumblings around ;)) and find CGI.pm (or any other HTML done in a similar way for that matter) unintuitive and ugly. Whenever I am doing some web-work I use templates for HTML. That way you can have a very clean hand-crafted HTML and no ugly print statements. Most of the time only a few things on a page are generated dynamicly, so it is very easy to use things like this:

use HTML::Template; # ... first send header, update counters, whatever ... # then comes HTML rendering phase: my $template = HTML::Template->new('template.html'); # set some parameter $template->param('counter', $counter); # print it all print $template->output();

It really separates all the business logic from display, so you can concentrate on interface with databse or whatever while leaving the HTML for a template. Well, at least I like it ;)
