Interesting point and it might be good to know how to include HTML within your Perl, but know there are 3 ways to do that:

  1. print statements (messy for a big HTML page)
  2. here docs
  3. CGI (lots of little 'codes' to learn)

However, if you are going to be doing any extensive web stuff, don't discount the templating route too quickly. I use HTML::Template exclusively and love it. It's really *not* like learning a whole new language (coding conventions aren't that extensive and are pretty easy to learn—feels like HTML), and most importantly, you keep HTML and Perl (or any executable server side coding separate. This is expecially important if you are working with non-programming web page designers (like I do every day).

In any case you will want to add CGI to your ammo belt. Take a look at a short course by the Monastery's very own Ovid.

Title:
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.
