First off, I am the only person working on this script and chances are no-one else will ever maintain it other than me, so I can pretty much do whatever I want

Here's an example of what I am doing:
... print "welcome ",$username, "your email address is ",$email; open(HTML,"index.da1"); while(<HTML>){print$_;} close(HTML); print "your manager is ",$manager; open(HTML,"index.da2"); while(<HTML>{print$_;} close(HTML);
basically I print out some information from the database, then a whole wack of html code (index.da1) and then print out some more info from the database then a whole wack more of html (index.da2).

obviously this is a very small example compared to what I am actually doing, but the basic idea is there.
do you think it would be quicker just to have all the html 'embedded' into the perl? even though this would make the script well over 7500 lines long? Does that make a difference (file length)?
