A Perl module (two,
to be precise) that allows the use of Perl in templates like HTML.
It is very similar
to JSP, PHP,
ASP, and other template languages.
In fact, the entire idea is assembled from these languages. However, there
are few notable differences.
- It embeds Perl
- our kind of language, not java, not VB!
- It is extremely
simple - there are only 4 different tags, no need for a 100-page
- It is open
and compatible - the core of PEE is the parser, which compiles
the template into ordinary perl code. It does not get in your
usual way of perl programming, since it does not do more than assembling
layout code with logic-handling code. It does not even require mod_perl,
although you may use it.
- It is extensible
- because everything is open, you may build a caching mechanism easily,
or add additional tags.
PEE is currently hosted
at SourceForge. You may use the
or bug tracking
to get support on using PEE. Contributions are definitely welcome!
