This appendix provides an introduction to the Template Toolkit, a
fast, flexible, powerful, and extensible template processing system
written in Perl. It is ideally suited for use in creating
highly customized static and dynamic web pages and for building
Perl-based web applications. This appendix explains how to get the
best out of the Template Toolkit under mod_perl (although the
Template Toolkit is in no way limited to use under mod_perl). All the
example code is available for download from this
book's web site (https://www.modperl.com/).
Once you've unzipped and untarred the distribution,
installation proceeds via the usual route. For example:
panic% perl Makefile.PL
panic% make test
panic# make install
Alternately, you can use the CPAN.pm module to
install it. Full details on installation can be found in the
INSTALL file in the distribution directory.
There is also a README file that is worth at
least a passing glance.
