in reply to Best templating system?

I've used Embperl and Mason. Both have their advantages--Embperl has a lot of neat HTML tricks it can do automatically, like filling in forms with sticky values, and dynamically constructing tables for you; Mason has a more extensible interface, I think.

And it's for this last reason that I like working with Mason better. Its OO design makes it very easy to extend certain pieces; for example, by default it pulls the "components" from the filesystem. But you can override this and write your own code to instead pull the data from another data source, like a database. Which is very nice. I also like Mason's caching support better.

PerlMonth has articles about using the various templating systems. You might want to take a look there and see if a particular style of templating appeals to you more. And of course, the best way to see which one you like is just to try them out.

    HTML::Embperl has the same component-based system in its newer versions.. Check out EmbperlObject
