I can't speak for jdtoronto
, but i am pretty sure that he
was talking about keeping the HTML and Perl seperate, but
in the same text file - i.e., put the template in the DATA
section. I agree that this is nice for small quickies, but
for anything serious, you should go ahead a seperate the
code and template into two (or more) text files.
So then the question is (again) - why not put the code and
template in the same text file? Because you will most likely
end up having to seperate them in the long run when
scalability rears it's ugly head. (please see 3Re: HTML::Template - complex sites
for a technique for dealing with a more complex template
(the triplet paradiddle with high-hat)
