Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Dear Monks,

I'd like to think that this is a simple question, but I've searched many places and am having trouble. I'd like to combine HTML::Template (great tutorials on this btw!) with something like the "node" feature you have on PerlMonks - so that my looks like:

How do I go about this? Can I do it without MySQL? Idealistically i would be able to type in a number and it would find that information from my database (text files), and display a page that combines my HTML::Template by using the ID tag to parse for the rest of variables on the same line in the text files.

Thanks soooo much!!!!
