in reply to HTML::Template macros

++blokhead, but if you find yourself needing more of those "things", you might want to look into Template. Now don't get me wrong, i love HTML::Template, but sometimes i like having more expressional power, and Template has it:
These are my [% hobbits.size %] favorite hobbits: <ul> [% FOREACH hobbit = hobbits %] <li>[% %]</li> [% END %] </ul>
Another cool thing (possibly overkill) is that each hobbit could be a real object, not just a hash in a list.

Oh yeah, you can get rid of the file slurp in your code by using the filehandle attribute instead of the scalarref one:

filehandle => \*DATA,
Much nicer and more efficient. Cheers. :)

    It's just as efficient, but not more efficient (look before you speak ) :D
