in reply to Code and html separation - always or mostly doable?

with a bit of thought, i've found that it's always possible to seperate the business logic and display logic using HTML::Template. (at least it has been for everything i've written for the last 3 or 4 years).

you may need to spend a bit of time coming up with a decent solution, but it almost always pays off. eg, i used to resort to using CGI.pm's popup_menu() to produce <select>s and then just passing them in as html strings. eventually i sat down and thought up a better solution and the result has been cleaner code with more control in the hands of the designer.

also, don't be afraid to subclass HTML::Template and override parts of it. that road has many interesting possibilities.

[LanX]: no idea ... ask py monks! ;-p
[tye]: it turns out that this can be caused by almost anything going wrong. If you want to know what caused the problem, you have to try to load each app by-hand to see what problems it is having, because none of those will be logged.
[tye]: No, I write more Perl than py at work. But I have to deal with plenty of py things.
[tye]: py monks would just be offended.
[Corion]: ;)
[Corion]: Hi tye btw ;)
[Corion]: I found plenty of not chatty enough logs with Perl too ... I'm slowly coming to appreciate Log::Log4perl resp. our homegrown alternative
[tye]: my experience with python so far is more like finding a moderately useful error message is a shocking surprise.
