I'm trying not to reinvent the wheel, but I'm having difficulty determining
if the wheel I'm needing has been invented.
I've looked at HTML::Template POD, and I get the basic concept. In my
ignorance I'm failing to see how I can apply it to my problem, and ifthere
are other CPAN modules that are better suited to my task.
I want to have a DWIMy page component system so that page controls can be
called out and "Do The Right Thing". Example:
and CSS, which need to be exposed in the container page; a script tag in the
"head", a 'div' that needs to appear early on inside the "body" tag, and the
'input' tag that has event handlers that usethe earlier script tag.
I'd like a system that abstract the container page, that lets me develop
the calendar control component as if it were the containing page, but when
added/included/embedded in the container page the system smartly places the
control component elements in the correct part of the containing page. The
clincher is the second add of the calendar widget doesn't duplicate the
'script' and 'div' tags, but only interjects the 'input' tag for the second
-------------- next part --------------
