Wow, a reply in a very short ammount of time.. :)
Well. I don't quite understand
what do you mean "turn a template into real Perl code"?
I already have perl code. maybe I was unclear (I am sometimes..)
Well, sort of everything changes...
it parsers generates HTML, not Perl code.
and by 'compile' I ment it puts the same head and foot file on every page.
I use the <@TAGS@> for all the colors..
When called like: manifold.cgi?mode=b
it has basic, black and white and blue colors.
and so on.
So, my site is thus skinned.
Perhaps I should post the code..
