I think astroboy has touched upon the problem here.

Model means business logic encapsulated in a nice way. Typically this reduces to a series of products/clients/orders which can be modelled on a database. Hence the confusion between ORMs and models.

I was having a different problem. There the business logic is about keeping the maintenance of the site down. The only recognizable object I can discern in the websites I'm currently looking at is the "page". I can reuse many templates across multiple templates but I was ending up with far too much code managing template parameters especially when a parameter can be used across several pages. Now what would an ORM give me? It would give me a different interface to the database (in fact another interface to learn) but it would not in itself have solved my problem.

Edit: I am working on some modules that I am already confident solve my problems. I still need to do some work on them but the current code is in github under the repositories: cgi-application-pagelookup/cgi-application-plugin-pagelookup/cgi-application-plugin-pagelookup-sitestructure/cgi-application-pagelookup-lang.

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
