I have had good results with HTML::Template for doing simple 1 form CGI
It is easy to use and has a small feature set which makes it easy to
I found it a good replacement for inline html and my home-grown
templating system (everyone has one right ?)
Now I use TT2 because it is much more flexible. Things I can do in TT2 I
can't do in HTML::Template (or at least never tried to do):
Write out non-html (e.g. XML, plain text, csv).
Access object methods from the template
Call back into perl from the template
Anyway, others can evangelise TT2 much better than I so I'll stop here.
I avoided HTML::Embperl, HTML::Mason & Apache::ASP because they all
embed perl into the template which is a Bad Thing (tm).
Almost, but not quite, entirely unlike tea.
