Here's the kind of thing you could do if this needs to be quick and dirty and you don't have time to learn Template::Toolkit:
my $variable = 'This is a value!'; my $variable_name = '$variable'; my $template = snarf('template.htm'); $template =~ s/\Q$variable_name\E/$variable/g; print $template; sub snarf { local $/ = undef; my $template_file = shift; open F, $template_file or die "can't open $template_file"; my $template = <F>; close F; $template; }
with the template.htm file containing:
<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>

in thread inserting HTML file in a PERL script by thetallblondguy

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
