Notice Anything Different?

Sunday, August 11, 2002

I sure hope not. :-) As mentioned, I’ve changed News Goat to use the perl module HTML::Template. It seems to be working fine. I had a little trouble, but that had nothing to do with the module, and everything to do with my lack of understanding perl subroutines. I don’t think there’s any real difference as far as processing time or bandwidth, but I think it will be useful to me. I can create an HTML file, then throw some variables into it to make it dynamic, rather than using a thousand print statements in perl.

If you’re curious, you can take a look at the template, or at the really ugly perl code.
