in reply to can you repeat a character N times using HTML::Template?

Hiya spditner,

Is there some way to get HTML::Template to repeat a character N times, say  , without resorting to HTML::Template::Expr?
Nope. :)

But... using Zaxo's advice above you could get the script to prepare a HTML::Template param for inclusion into your .tmpl template like so:

# Original code by Zaxo my $repeated = '&nbsp;' x $foo->{'depth'}; my $line = $repeated . $foo->{'name'} . "<br />"; my $template = HTML::Template->new(filename => 'foo.tmpl'); $template->param(html_out => $line);
Then in foo.tmpl you would call the result by using something like:
<TMPL_VAR NAME="html_out">
Not sure if that's the kind of answer you were looking for, but its one way of achieving your desired result.
