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

Hi Bill. All you really need to do is gather up the data from your file into some data structure. If you just need to put the lines as is ( or slightly modified ) an array is probably perfect. If you need to break these lines up into more granular pieces you will probably want an array of hashes with the hashes containing the individual data elements.

Then you can use MIME::Lite::TT::HTML to send your E-mail using a Template Toolkit template. I wrote a short tutorial on how to use this module which can be found here

Once you have the data in some sort of structure, you just pass that data as TmplParams and then can access it in the template for position, loops, etc.

Hope this helps!

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

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
