in thread thoughts on creating modular perl for web application

Because PHP started life as a Perl templating module. :-)

Being right, does not endow the right to be rude; politeness costs nothing.
Being unknowing, is not the same as being stupid.
Expressing a contrary opinion, whether to the individual or the group, is more often a sign of deeper thought than of cantankerous belligerence.
Do not mistake your goals as the only goals; your opinion as the only opinion; your confidence as correctness. Saying you know better is not the same as explaining you know better.

    Interesting. I had no idea. The funny thing is, afaik, Perl has way more templating options than PHP. I know of only one in the PHP world -- Smarty. Other than that, PHP code ends up being a mess of logic and display all munged together, much like Cold Fusion or ASP code does.

      I have to chuckle every time I hear about Smarty (even though I haven't seen it). The idea that a templating language would need another templating language is just ludicrous. {grin}
