If you would have used an OO framework like CGI::Application for the structure of your app, you would have been able to do this very easily, without needing to subclass HTML::Template.

package My::App; use base qw(CGI::Application); sub load_tmpl { my $self = shift; my $template = $self->SUPER::load_tmpl(@_); # add some global params here $template->param( ... ); return $template; } sub runmode { my $self = shift; my $template = $self->load_tmpl('filename.tmpl'); $template->param( ... ); return $template->output; }

OO doesn't work for everything, but if you find yourself passing the same bits of data to all of your functions, then you probably should at least investigate using an object instead.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
