The way I chose it is the shameful bit, and I just realized it.
"Let's see...PPM, install HTML::Mason, install HTML::Template...
"Now...perl. use HTML::Mason; __END__. Errors. Bugger that.
"perl. use HTML::Template; __END__. No errors. Well, that's good then."
I know. I'm sure Mason has a lot going for it, but "workingness" is kind of important at this very moment in time. I promise I'll come back and massage Mason a little to get it working someday, Perl Scouts Honor.

Note to self: Start a Perl Scouts group or something. It could be clever.
