I agree... discounting a few things that HTML::Template may be useful for, I always found it hard to actually 'wrap' my code around a template. I know that if separating code from content is an issue, then wouldn't it be simpler to move on to Mason? However, I'm not particular fan of this either since many Mason scripts I looked at appeared to be quite a mess.

Having said that, I am actually trying to move more towards splitting display logic from program logic. One way to do this, I think, would be to have your program generate and store all of its 'working' data mean to be displayed in some fashion in a hash or some complex enough structure which yet could be looped through/accessed via a templating script (such as <TMPL_LOOP ... > </TMPL_LOOP> implemented in HTML::Template).

Since I'm yet not a strong believer in Perl templating utilities, would anyone with some related experience share in his/her joys of using them? I'd be interested in hearing from someone who was in a position similar to I'm in now (that is 'hardly decided') and how they managed to integrate this concept in their code.

PS: my native language is Russian so don't mind my English! ;-)

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