in thread HTML::Template

Template toolkit is indeed more ergonomic, but it also carries a lot of (useful) baggage with it (but baggage is still baggage). The example given lends itself to a more simpler solution. Rather than being the Pepsi guy at a Coca-Cola rally, i would have recommended Inline::TT:
use strict; use warnings; use Inline qw(TT); print test( HOME => $ENV{HOME}, PATH => $ENV{PATH}, ); __END__ __TT__ [% BLOCK test %] <html> <head><title>Test Template</title> <body> My Home Directory is [% HOME %] <p> My Path is set to [% PATH %] </body> </html> [% END %]
However, i still prefer HTML::Template for its sheer simplicity. And my eyes haven't gone bad yet. ;)
