in reply to Follow up to RFC: Templating without a System

After reading the beginning of your missive, I wonder if you've considered Text::Template.

    Yes, I did. The big difference between Text::Template and mine is the outside-in approach and the conversion of a template into an anonymous sub, apart from simplicity to have it as generic as possible. But Text::Template (as well as all other packages I've seen so far) are a great source for studying, to get me think of pitfalls I might not yet have considered.

    Just two details of Text::Template to highlight my concern: the usage of Safe in Text::Template, and it's concern about tainted data. Well, I think that's none of the templating functions's business, but of the caller.

    The builtin parser in Servlet (or OI) is for HTML, the plain text extension would be a bit more than just three s///, because it has do deal with whitespace properly.

    Point is, I want something as close as possible to format and write; and with effective caching.


    _($_=" "x(1<<5)."?\n".q/)Oo.  G\        /
                                  /\_/(q    /
    ----------------------------  \__(m.====.(_("always off the crowd"))."
    ");sub _{s./.($e="'Itrs `mnsgdq Gdbj O`qkdq")=~y/"-y/#-z/;$e.e && print}
