in reply to HTML::Template and hashes of hashes

Treat them as Lists of Hashes, even if it's only one hash in the list:
my $VAR1 = { 'apptimeupdated' => '20040315145142', 'apptype' => [{ 'apt_defstatus' => [{ 'name' => 'Pending', }], 'value' => '50', }], }; my $tmpl = HTML::Template->new(filehandle => \*DATA); $tmpl->param($VAR1); print $tmpl->output; __DATA__ <tmpl_var apptimeupdated> <tmpl_loop apptype> <tmpl_var value> <tmpl_loop apt_defstatus> <tmpl_var name> </tmpl_loop> </tmpl_loop>
I hate to say it ... but i would use TT here instead, since it works better with your existing data structure:
my $VAR1 = { 'apptimeupdated' => '20040315145142', 'apptype' => { 'apt_defstatus' => { 'name' => 'Pending', }, 'value' => '50', }, }; my $tt = Template->new; $tt->process(\*DATA, $VAR1) || die $tt->error(); __DATA__ [% apptimeupdated %] [% apptype.value %] [% %]
OK ... so i don't hate to say it. TT rocks. ;)

    Thanks jeffa you are right about TT. But this app is 5-6000 lines in and is all based on H::T. I have the TT Book and will be learning it before I start on another project.
