in reply to PHP to PERL ?

If you want to switch from PHP to Perl, you probably have to change the way you program/script. Unlike with PHP, Perl people like to seperate code and design issues by means of templates (yes, the PHP community has Smarty too now; funny, a templating language for a templating language ;-)

Instead of dumping your code in between your HTML output, you could just push the variables (output of the code) towards a template. The big advantage is that the result will be more readable, and easier to maintain.

I tend to enjoy Template Toolkit. To answer you question (how to insert a text file) based on this templating system:

[% INCLUDE announcements.txt %]

The learning curve might be a little steep, yet it's worth it, and it pays off, to continue reading the documentation.

You could also use PLP, by good fellow monk Juerd.


All code is usually tested, but rarely trusted.
