in reply to Help with nested loop in HTML::Template

I would use Template::Alloy's extensions to HTML::Template. It is much easier to access data and will probably run faster than using HTML::Template by itself.
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Template::Alloy qw(HTML::Template); use HTML::Template; my $data = [ [qw{one two three}], [qw{four five six}], [qw{seven eight nine}], ]; my $tmpl = do{local $/;<DATA>}; my $t = HTML::Template->new(scalarref => \$tmpl) or die qq{tmpl obj fa +iled\n}; $t->param({data => $data}); print $t->output; __DATA__ <TMPL_FOR row IN data> --------------------------- <TMPL_FOR i IN row> <TMPL_VAR i> </TMPL_FOR> </TMPL_FOR>
The output will be same as the previous post.

my @a=qw(random brilliant braindead); print $a[rand(@a)];

    Thanks for your replies. I was able to get it working using both of the examples in the two posts. I had no idea html templates had the <FOR> tag. Impressive.
