( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
That is because you didn't reset your $template, so your regex didn't match %%DESCRIPTION%%. Use can use a tmp variable to reset $template.
open (TEMPLATE, "<$template_file") or die "Can't open $template_file: +$!"; $template = do { local $/; <TEMPLATE> }; close TEMPLATE; $tmp_template = $template; #store the template opendir (BIN, "$prod_dir") or die "Can't open $dir: $!"; while (defined ($file = readdir BIN)) { next if ($file =~/^\.\.?$/); #skip file starting with period +s open (DESCR, "<$prod_dir/$file") or die "could not open $dir +/$file: $!"; $description = do { local $/; <DESCR> }; $template = $tmp_template; # restore the template $template =~ s/%%DESCRIPTION%%/$description/; open (OUTPUT, ">$output_directory/$file.html"); print OUTPUT $template; close OUTPUT; next; } closedir (BIN);

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
