Text::Template is a module for doing dynamic content generation in Perl. You can embed any Perl code into a file, and then make a call to the module to `fill in' the blanks in the file. This is good for generating HTML pages and form letters. It was first released in 1995 and is very stable, very fast, and very reliable. It is also integrated with Perl's Safe module in case you don't trust the template author.

Release Notes: An UNTAINT option was added to tell the module that it is safe to 'eval' code even though it has come from a file or filehandle. The subclass Text::Template::Preprocess was added. It is just like Text::Template, but it allows you to supply a PREPROCESS option in the constructor or the fill_in call (a function that receives and may modify each code fragment prior to evaluation, the modified fragment being that which is evaluated). Minor bugfixes were added.
Release Notes: First announcement.
