The Template Toolkit looks like it would allow me to write chunks of C code to include bits of perl which would customize the code.

So far I have been generating the C code with many small perl here documents, and interpolating perl variables as needed.

It looks like Template Toolkit can do his with ease. But most of the toolkit documentation seems to be about embedding logic into the template.

I think I would like to keep the logic outside of the templates, in the perl code. Am I missing something, is this a design trap?

If I use the Template Toolkit in such a simplistic manner, is there still and advantage over a bunch of here documents?

Somehow I feel like a novice again as I write perl that writes C. I have used HTML::Template for web work and written a ton of C code for signal processing, but now I am starting over again.

It should work perfectly the first time! - toma

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