Imagine you wanted to write the output as a perl print statement: you could write:
my $name = "Dave"; my $user = "dpuu"; print <<HERE; Hello, my name is $name and my user name is $user HERE
This will do variable interpolation on a set of lines.

If you want to separate the script and the flat-file, you can create a print-statement on the fly, using eval:

my $name="Dave"; my $user="dpuu"; my $text_file="User.htm"; my $text=`cat $text_file`; eval "print <<HERE;\n$text\nHERE";
You want to be careful when putting this in a production environment: executing data files as code could introduce some security holes (or just very strange bugs). This script won't work with perl's -T option --Dave.

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