in thread HTML To ASP Converter

That's strange that it should benchmark that way. I've noticed that VBScript doesn't have anything like Perl's here-doc capability (unless I am missing something), it would be much nicer to be able to do this (I'll give you a PerlScript ASP example):
$Response->Write(<<SNIPPET); <HTML> <Head> <Title>$title</Title> </Head> <Body> SNIPPET
This way, the HTML is left alone still. But that's PerlScript for you! - No hard feelings?
$code or die
$ perldoc perldoc

    There is no here document but it's not that much of hassle to put script tags and use the = as a shortcut for Response.Write, i.e.

    ' ... ' asp code %> <html> <head> <title><%=title%></title> </head> <body> <% ' more ASP code ' ...

    Admittedly it's a few more characters than perl but not too painful. You can just have plain HTML text in your ASP document outside the script tags.

    None at all. I'd love to move to using Perl for everything, but I've been using VBScript for so long now, that it comes easier to me. Besides, I'm not a "developer" per se, I just write stuff to make my life easier (like this script). I've only been hacking away at Perl for about a month now, and this is the first really non-experimental, usable script I've made, and I was kinda proud of it.
