  Actually, there are two ways to include other files using Text::Template.
  Here are a couple of examples:

      <H3> Included File Below</H3>
      {qx{cat filename}}



  you can make an alias in the package you use to store variables for the
  template called 'include', then it just looks like:


  The man page shows how to do this.

  Text::Template seems to have adequate speed in a CGI setting, but my
  applications if Text::Template have been pretty small scale.
