( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

The more I look at the and think about it, the more it seems the template portion should be completly seperate from the PDF generation portion. Is there any real reason to combine those two together? Then HTML, PDF, EXCEL would all use the same template code and the post parse the output in the needed form. Code might look like:

<code> use Simple::Template; #dunno what you would call it but it pulls the *template* portions out use PDF::Template; my $pdf = Simple::Template->new(filename => $filename, processor => PDF::Template->new() ); $pdf->output_file($filename . '.pdf'); <code>

PDF::Template could even automate the calls to Simple::Template. A generic backend template would have the advantage that the user could use HTML::Template (style) or TT or something else to generate the final code to send to the Processor.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
