in reply to developing a template system

Maybe the best approach would be to make templating systems less restrictive. whether using a single perl script, splitting script and perl (HTML::Template) or embedding perl (HTML::Mason) there are clear disadvantages. An alternative is to join all three methods together. Have a file that is a perl script but contains the ability to include templating and embedding. For example:
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; my $script; my $template_variable = "templating"; while(<DATA>){ my $line = $_; $line=~s/\n//g; if ($line=~m/^(\s*)%(.*)/ig){ $script = $script."$2\n"; }else{ $script = $script."print \"$line\n\";\n"; } } #print $script; eval $script; __DATA__ <html> normal HTML %print "embedding perl \n"; $template_variable

As little or as much templating or embedding could be done depending on the requirements of the project, without changing framework and using perl as much as possible.
