And now, I'm not going to put it on CPAN :-)

    Come on, admit it, you may feel dirty but deep down you feel really good, don't you? :-)
  • I assume you had a legitimate reason to roll your own (what with you being Matt Sergeant and everything), so I have to ask...

      My templating system is just
      s/<(\w+)>/$opts{$1} || warn("No option for $1 found") && ""/eg;
      The last thing I need is to have to add more compiled perl code to my mod_perl httpds, and have to add another RPM to ship this project with.
