I think there's a lot of potential for manipulating dreamweaver's markup
and file structures from perl. I've been able to write CGI scripts
that do stuff like.
print STDOUT get_library_component('componentname');
and fetch and include stuff from dreamweaver at the appropriate place.
I think there's a lot of potential in this sort of approach but I've not
heard of anyone exploiting it.
