( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
As one who is still learning Perl (and unlearning bad habits and techniques), I would strongly recommend using Template Toolkit for your project. Understand that TT IS Perl, not some "other language". Also, much of the syntax in TT reflects changes in the latest Perl incarnation, Perl 6. With TT you can get your hands dirty with databases, XML, web applications (including CGI) and more withouth getting lost in a myriad of details, all of which you will learn with experience wtih the language. I agree that "Learning Perl" is an excellent choice to learn the basics of the language but the "Camel" book is perhaps a bit in depth for newcomers. I would recommend moving on to "Learning Objects and References in Perl" as the logical follow up to "Learning Perl". Good luck with your endeavors and don't forget, the Perl community is one of your best sources for answers and help.

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.
