in thread HTML::Template, pseudo trees and indention.

jeffa understanding something and your average programmer understanding it are two completely different things. You see, jeffa actually has (at least) half a brain and is willing to use it. :-)

I might have been a little harsh in my response. But, I feel that BUU's tree representation, while compact, is mostly unusable. Given a more useful tree representation (such as Tree or Tree::Simple), one is inevitably led to use one of the tools that already exist for reformatting objects of those classes (which I list in my original response). Why reinvent the wheel?


My criteria for good software:
  1. Does it work?
  2. Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?

    hehehee. why? simple. You said it "couldn't be done, period".

    Naturally, we can debate the merits of near a infinite number of possible solutions (TIMTOWTDI after all), but that wasn't the point :)
