"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.
