  • By far the best template system available for Perl. You can pass hash references from your script to the template, and iterate through arrays or hashes, etc. also has macros, which I have yet to use.
  • I used HTML::Template for two years and greatly enjoyed the switch from that to Template::Toolkit. T::T makes templating dead simple, plus powerful features are available when you dig a little deeper.

    Template::Toolkit makes it blindingly easy to format data structures -- wanna mark up that RSS feed? Just pass an XML::RSS object to the process() method and instantly do things like [% FOREACH item = items %]<li>[% item.title %]</li>[% END %] -- check out "How to Avoid Writing Code" [perl.com]
