"many lines of code" = about 1,500
How do you create your html? If it is generated with print and heredocs within the script, you probably can reduce its size by using a templating mechanism and moving the html to separate files.

Also, if you have such a big number of constants in your script, I would put them in some kind of configuration file, so you can change them without having to edit the script.
  • reduced total code lines because common elements are not rerpoduced in separate scripts
  • during development, a change to any common element only has to be made once instad of four times.
There is another way to achieve this. Put your common code into modules.

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
