Retiring, March 2020 - sorry, you have missed our final public course.
The Coronavirus situation has lead us to suspend public training - which was on the cards anyway, with no plans to resume

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc
Happily continuing private consultancy / programming work
 
Embperl

Most people use Perl scripts on the web to run programs that generate web pages, and they use PHP to write web pages that include programitic (scripted) elements. Both of these approaches work well.

But let's say that you want to provide web pages that include a bit of scripting, you know Perl already, but not PHP. Do you need to learn another language? No - you'll want to look at Mason, the Template Toolkit, or (my flavour today) Embperl. With Embperl, a few simple extra markers added to your HTML can allow you to drop in bits of code quickly and easily; it turns Perl into what I call an "HTML++" language along the lines of PHP.

Example - setting a variable in Embperl

[- $year = 1900 + (localtime())[5]; -]

and using that variable in the output:

[+ $html +]

This is a page archived from The Horse's Mouth at http://www.wellho.net/horse/ - the diary and writings of Graham Ellis. Every attempt was made to provide current information at the time the page was written, but things do move forward in our business - new software releases, price changes, new techniques. Please check back via our main site for current courses, prices, versions, etc - any mention of a price in "The Horse's Mouth" cannot be taken as an offer to supply at that price.
