in reply to Code Critique
Why dont people embrace the concept of templates? I'm the first to admit my perl knowledge is still very limited but one of the first modules I ever used was HTML::Template. Seperating your code/content/style just plain makes sense. (i.e what css is to html).
Apart from the use strict comment (I got use strict and -w bitch slapped into me when I first started sratching out code in perl) I think that templates should be the next thing you implement.
That's after any coding changes the monks suggest though.
