( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
In the small app I'm currently working on, I create 3 or 4 template objects and print each of their outputs. Each invocation of these templates is presenting data from unrelated queries.

This is just a suggestion on how this might be managed (and simplified) with one template object:

sub some_mode { my $tmpl_object = $self->load_tmpl('my_tmpl.html'); $tmpl_object->param( param1 => 'foo' param2 => 'bar', param3 => 'baz'); # Poke the data for the top part of the page into the $tmpl_object get_top($tmpl_object); # Ditto for the left side of the page get_left($tmpl_object); # Display the entire templated page return $tmpl_object->output; }

Of course you can add parameters to get_top() and get_left() to fine tune their output on a mode-by-mode basis, but by passing around one template object at a time things may become much simpler than having your program eat its tail calling one recursive mode within a mode within a mode after another.

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