in reply to CPAN Alternative to perl formats?

There's Text::Template.

And it'd be easy to write a wrapper around Perl6::Form or the other possibilities to automate getting the template from a file.

    I think Text::Template is closer to HTML::Template where you have to explicitly say the formatting - so I can't have like a placeholder @>>>>>>>>>>>> and put in the string "test" and have it automatically padded with the correct number of spaces.
