in reply to Replacing text between two html comments

You want to add /s as an option on your regular expression, thereby treating the whole string as a single line. Furthermore, as you have it currently, you're also zapping your delineators without replacing them. Maybe capture them as well and include their buck-whaps ($1, $3) in the replacement expression.

You're probably okay with this as long as you can reasonably guarantee that your comment tokens are unique within any given document. Otherwise use a real parser, such as HTML::Parser. Or use a template system like Text::Template.

Cheers,
Matt

[Perl300]: I used sendmail before for a few times but read that is causes some security issues so trying something better/secure this time
[1nickt]: If you use a remote SMTP server there should be no local security issues. Your mail server probably wants an encrypted connection, so the message contents cannot be stolen.
[jedikaiti]: Greetings, Salutations, and all that Jazz
[Perl300]: ok, and for future if I want to use local box for something similar, then will Email::Sender:: Simple be a good choice?
[1nickt]: It's a framework that allows you to specify the Transport agent to whatever you want. You could even write your own.
[1nickt]: Perl300 More doc
[hippo]: In that case, use Net::SMTPS and also encrypt your content before you send it eg. with Crypt::GPG
