Just to generalize the script I gave you... This replaces any variable in the template with its value in the program. It's a quick-and-dirty fix that may solve your problem if you're in a rush. Of course, as others have noted, it would be better if you used a proper templating system. Note also that this only works for simple scalar variables (e.g. $thing, $ZOWIE), not for more complicated variables such as array or hash elements (e.g., $var[$num] or $var{thing}).
my $template = snarf('template.htm'); while ($template =~ /(\$[:alpha:]\w*)/g) { my $variable_name = $1; my $value = eval $variable_name; $template =~ s/\Q$variable_name\E/$value/g; } print $template;

In reply to Re^3: inserting HTML file in a PERL script by Tortue
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.
