in thread Here documents in blocks

It's just a tradeoff between danger and beauty :)

Personally I put the HERE-IS block at the left hand edge, and skip the whole "indent" thing.

    me too, mostly at the end of a sub.

    If I need a template, then it'll normally also merit a sub.

    sub html_admin { my($user_number)=@_; my $HTML_restricted = ""; $HTML_restricted = <<"__HTML__" if $user_number == 20; <tr> <td class="someClass">Restricted</td> </tr> __HTML__ return << "__HTML__"; <table> <tr> <td class="someclass" style="text-align:center">Some Content +</td> </tr> $HTML_restricted </table> __HTML__ }

      I think that LanX and tybalt89 have answered much of my question...is there an accepted best practice?
      Sounds like it's to just ignore the whole indent problem.

        > is there an accepted best practice?

        yes, but you won't like it. :)

        It's use one of the many template systems, especially for HTML.

        You can role your own, but at the end you will reinvent the wheel.

        Personally I'm stuck with a system at $work where I have to roll my own :/

        Another best practice is MVC ... well separation of code and templates at least.
