Hello, whoever you are :-)

Well, that's the whole point. It's supposed to be dirt-simple for the web developer to use and deploy, and it doesn't get any simpler than having an html file with a little bit of perl...

With all due respect, I was not asking what you thought would be easiest for web developers. I was asking where did scorpio17 (and apparently you) get the idea that mod_perlite would act as a templating engine and allow you to freely place Perl code within an HTML document. None of the things I've read about mod_perlite talk about such a feature and I do not believe it is intended to do that (as said before, you can almost certainly get mod_perlite to do this by using Template::Toolkit or HTML::Mason or the like, but that would be a feature of these modules, not mod_perlite).

As for the rest of your post, I am still waiting to hear about a single feature that mod_perlite has which existing solutions don't.


All dogma is stupid.

    Sorry. Good question. I was making a rather reckless assumption based on how easy it is to deploy php files and based on the notion of making things as easy as possible for users. I don't have any idea what deployment model the mod_perlites have in mind.

    That said, I'll add that, IMO, if you make things any harder at all than php -- even if it's just a little more work -- it'll just be thrown in your face that php is in fact still easier.
