on Aug 05, 2004 at 02:06 UTC ( [id://380172]=perlquestion: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Samm has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I already parsed the data using perl, but now since the list is long and I want to update it every time I run the perl program how can I embed the table using html inside of my perl script.

The format looks like this

Please help
thanks

Can somebody show me how I can put html in perl

Bob, health care, date=18:18 on July 9, total = 100, sum, 80, result = +done Bob, benefit, date 11:16 on July12, total =100 Bob, dental, date 11:20 July 2, result = done Tom, health care, date=18:18 on July 9, total = 100, sum, 80, result = +done Tom, benefit, date 11:16 on July12, total =100 Tom, dental, date 11:20 July 2, result = failed <<, *** << Name Health care | Benefit | Dental Bob Date=18:18 | data data TOm total = 100 |total=100 sum= 80 result = done --------------------------

    You need to be more clear with your question - what does your data look like, and what html do you want to "embed in perl"??
      the data is long I just want to show you the foramt.

    You might want to read the information here. With a little effort you should be able to figure it out. With CGI.pm you can do things like this ...
    print table({-border=>undef}, caption('When Should You Eat Your Vegetables?'), Tr({-align=>CENTER,-valign=>TOP}, [ th(['Vegetable', 'Breakfast','Lunch','Dinner']), td(['Tomatoes' , 'no', 'yes', 'yes']), td(['Broccoli' , 'no', 'no', 'yes']), td(['Onions' , 'yes','yes', 'yes']) ] ) );

    Well, in general, you may not want to embedd html in your perl code. I'd use Template Toolkit to generate the html.
