in thread Templating system for generating C code?

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
