HTML::Mason does not depend on mod_perl, but it can use it ;-)

Here's your example rendered through Mason:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use HTML::Mason; sub foo { $_[0] + $_[1] } my $template = << 'END'; This is some line. This is a line with some expression: <% foo(3,5) %> % for my $s qw(this that) { This is <% $s %> line % } This is the end END my $output; my $interp = HTML::Mason::Interp->new( out_method => \$output, in_package => __PACKAGE__, ); my $comp = $interp->make_component( comp_source => $template ); $interp->exec($comp); print $output;

You mentioned you don't care too much about the syntax, that's why I preferred do not show you how to override Mason's default syntax. Check out http://masonhq.com/docs/manual/ if you're interested.
