in thread HTML::Template, CGI:Application and design methodologies

In the small app I'm currently working on, I create 3 or 4 template objects and print each of their outputs. Each invocation of these templates is presenting data from unrelated queries.

This is just a suggestion on how this might be managed (and simplified) with one template object:

sub some_mode { my $tmpl_object = $self->load_tmpl('my_tmpl.html'); $tmpl_object->param( param1 => 'foo' param2 => 'bar', param3 => 'baz'); # Poke the data for the top part of the page into the $tmpl_object get_top($tmpl_object); # Ditto for the left side of the page get_left($tmpl_object); # Display the entire templated page return $tmpl_object->output; }

Of course you can add parameters to get_top() and get_left() to fine tune their output on a mode-by-mode basis, but by passing around one template object at a time things may become much simpler than having your program eat its tail calling one recursive mode within a mode within a mode after another.
