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.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
