INSTALLATION Install via one of the following: perl Makefile.PL make make test make install or perl Build.PL perl Build perl Build test perl Build install DESCRIPTION This module implements an easy to use search-and-replace API for substituting parameters into template files. The Perl module it most closely resembles is HTML::Template. It's main advantages over that module are: * it's template syntax is easily configured * it implements the Clotho Advanced Media template syntax by default (yeah big deal, but it's important to us) * it is smaller and, subjectively, more readable It's main disadvantages under HTML::Template are: * it's caching and preparsing are less sophisticated * the default template syntax is quirkier * it's not as feature rich in syntax and configuration options If you are starting from scratch, you may prefer HTML::Template. But, if you already have a bunch of templates using a syntax that is not compatible with HTML::Template, this can help.
