in reply to avoiding newlines when using system calls.

If you want to follow blakem advice and use the POSIX module, here is how to do it. There is no newline here, plus you don't fork an external process just to fetch the date.

use POSIX qw/ strftime /; # standard module $today = strftime("%D", localtime); # localtime in list context

You could even do it this other way, but be careful with embedded %-sign in your variables. That might bite you.

use POSIX qw/ strftime /; open trf, ">/tmp/.$handle"; print trf strftime("$handle|$crpw|$first_name|$last_name|$email_addy|0 +|%D", localtime); close trf;

[Corion]: Meh. I think I have now the parts down that I want from a simple Javascript frontend for single-page- applications with a aPerl backend. But it seems that all Javascript templating modules either don't support two-way binding (which would be nice) or ...
[Corion]: ... don't support server-side precompilation (which means the client has to compile all templates to Javascript themselves), or are giant frameworks that expect to do everything (which is not what I want)
[Corion]: I feel that there is a talk somewhere in there, either about the structure and parts, or how I used several parts to get a complete whole.
[Corion]: Maybe I can still find something that is compatible with handlebars.js (which has JS precompilation) but allows for two-way data binding (which is great for the UI)
