in reply to Content management system = perl coming of age ritual?

Guilty. Oh so guilty.

A "module" (no package, no importing, just slurp it all into main) which implemented a some CGI utility functions, a script to do CMS, and a message board script. All bundled together. All ugly.

Module contained a file slurping function, a hand rolled CGI form parser, mostly copied from Matt's Script Archive, a crappy ass templating system (a single regex wrapped in a function) and a terrible totally broken XML parser.

To be honest, it's probably one of the few pieces of code I really *like*. But, like the man said, kill your babies. And I'm better for it
