I ++ed this for the work and thought you've put into aiming before shooting. I regret that I think you missed anyhow.

Looking at your coded $data, that doesn't seem much different in concept from the html generation available from CGI.pm. You still have much of the content firmly embedded in perl.

I don't see what's gained by (somewhat inaccurately) calling an iterative loop 'recursion' and shoveling it back into the program logic under a fig leaf of a template label. Similarly with decision structures.

A template system should try to leave all the text in the template or in data files, with code logic filling in variables, selecting which data files to display, etc. The template is itself representative of some grammar, a little language for display. You correctly recognised that as code, but I think you missed by designing it back into the perl layer.

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