( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Hi jimt, i liked your article, i'm just another guy who wrote his own template system.

I have to say that in the process i experienced many of the same problems than you. It has been very enrichment to read the mental chewing behind the scenes.

Sadly i also believe that "there's more than one way to do it" is a bare and a bone, i can't complaint about it, because i did it (i built my own template system).

What's good: "There are many ways to do it”.

What's Wrong: "There are many ways to do it”:

  • Which one ?
  • What's the more popular ?
  • What are the benefits of this over the other ?
  • etc.

It's similar to what happens with people trying to get into Linux, the first “and complex” question they face is: ¿ What distro to use ?

People new to Develop Web Applications with Perl get confused on the large number of tools at different levels available.

I don't pretend to criticize Perl Tools Developers, what i mention here is a real fact that probably don't have any solution.
