Embperl is a framework for building websites with Perl.
For the beginner it's an easy to setup and use way of embedding Perl code in
HTML pages. It delivers several features that ease the task of creating a
ebsites, including dynamic tables, formfield-processing,
escaping/unescaping, session handling, caching and more.
If your demands grow it gives you the power to make your Website
object-oriented and build it out of small reusable components. If you don't
like the idea of mixing up all your layout and code then Embperl also
supports separating it in different objects (e.g. creating an MVC
application). Of course Embperl doesn't tie you to HTML - it allows
components to be from different source formats (e.g. HTML, WML, XML, POD,
...) and if necessary transforms them (for example via XSLT) to other output
formats. This is achieved by dividing the output generation into small
steps, where each is processed by a plugable provider. Advanced users can
create their own syntax definitions (for example tag libraries) and extend
Embperl by writing their own providers and much more...
Embperl is a server-side tool, which means that it's browser-independent. It
can run in various ways: under mod_perl, as a CGI script, or offline.
