will has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Sorry for the simple question, the guy who normally does this stuff for us is on vacation so I have been failing miserably trying to get something very simple to work.
We have a script that has some hardcoded HTML in it which has been needing updates fairly often. Editing it in the middle of the file has gotten annoying, all I want to do is be able to set the variable to read the HTML from another file.
I was able to read from another file, but it wouldn't get all the HTML. I think because of some characters it didn't like. Want to make sure the way I do it won't mess up like that or if it runs quickly.
Really I just want in the script to be able to set
$something = <everything in a separate file(will be all HTML)
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your time.
