Yes. And it offers me a way to expand my previous answer. You say that a template is "a format used for describing output". I'll go further, saying that a template generates a language (i.e. a set of strings). On the other hand a regular expression denotes a language, then is usable to recognize strings that belong or not to a set. Since the original question asked for a way to recognize strings in a set, I suggested to change terminology in order to be conducted to the right abstraction that Perl provides.

[Lady_Aleena]: This evening, I thought to myself, "I would love to search Netflix for 100 randomfilms from my database to see if they have them." So I went to CPAN to see if there were a modiule which could do such a thing. There is, but GUH! ...
[Lady_Aleena]: ... Does it have to be that hard and complex to use to do a search on Netflix?
Lady_Aleena grumbles.
[Lady_Aleena]: I really need to get back into the swing of Perl. I'm forgetting things from lack of use. I don't know how behind I am too.
