in reply to Templating on a shared host?

We need to know what you can and can't do on the shared host. Errto has assumed that you yourself can install modules on this server. Others may assume you can get the sysadmin of the server to install a module or two. swares assumes you have a home directory and he points to some good documentation on how to use it.

From what you said, there is some directory that you can upload files to. If you don't have a home directory, but can create sub-directories, then you can create a directory "yourlib" to use in an analagous way to the '/usr/home/your_home_dir/lib/' directory in the guide that swares refered you to.

If you can't create directories, and you can't get the sysadmin to install modules, or create the directories you need, then you may be stuck. I don't know if Template::Toolkit can run with just in the local directory, using "use lib './';", but that's easy enough for you to try on the server.

    First of all, I appreciate everyone's responses. : )

    To give a bit more detail, I don't have a /home directory per se, but I can create subdirectories within my designated area on the shared host. So it seems like what's described in the guide should work. They are running Red Hat with perl 5.008, whatever that means -- I assume it means 5.8.* -- and I'm on Ubuntu, with perl 5.8.7; So we'll see. I haven't experimented yet, but I'm feeling a bit reassured. My initial searches were only turning up solutions that involved some kind of telnet or SSH connection, so I started to worry...

    In any case, I'm encouraged by isync's reminder that, as always, TIMTOWTDI.

    By the way, ++ everyone for not telling me to get a new hosting provider!
