www.template-toolkit.org says "The Template Toolkit is a fast, powerful and
extensible template processing system. It is ideally suited to the production
and maintenance of web content and other dynamic document systems."
Template Toolkit is an excellent system for web content, but it is also really
useful for many other tasks.
If you've thought about using the m4 macro language to help manage your system
configuration files, but you didn't like it, you should try Template Toolkit.
If you need to run a mail merge but you hate Windoze and/or Word, you should try
Template Toolkit. If you're being forced to use Java and your IDE won't write
at least half your code, you should try Template Toolkit. Or in Perl, if h2xs
and ModuleMaker don't do it for you, you should try Template Toolkit.
This talk will explain how to use Template Toolkit in the above situations.
