( [id://3333] : superdoc . print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Hello

In my perl scripts, I often generate HTML code like this :

 

#!/usr/bin/perl

.......

print <<eof ;
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<TITLE>Title</TITLE>
</HEAD>
The variable is : $variable
<BR><BR>
<TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width="100%" border=0>
<TR><TD>
<HR color=#99ffcc SIZE=4>
<FONT face=Arial color=#99ffcc><B>
Bottom text
</B></FONT>
</TD></TR></TABLE>
</BODY>
</HTML>


eof

......

 

However, this code is not easily editable with softwares like FrontPage.

I would like to put this code in an easily editable .html file, and use an instruction in my perl script, that would insert this html file in my perl script, with the $variable, so that $variable is substituted on execution of the script. This is an example with $variable but i would like to work with any $xxx

Any suggestion ?

Thanks for your help.

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).
