in reply to Web Application Frameworks and their Templating Engines with a Comparative Study of Template and HTML::Template

In Template, Perl sections are controllable with a config param. So you can force all Perl code to be outside of template files. UhOh #1 goes away.

And by giving a nice mini-language, presentation logic can be encoded in the template, while data logic is traditionally coded in the Perl side, and carefully controlled. Yes, people blur it in both directions, but that's a style issue, not inherent in the design.

And to the comment that HTML::Template is cached under mod_perl, well, so is Template. {grin}
