Module Version: 1.248   Source   Latest Release: WebDyne-1.250

Name ^

WebDyne - create web pages with embedded Perl

Description ^

WebDyne is a Perl based dynamic HTML engine. It works with web servers (or from the command line) to render HTML documents with embedded Perl code.

Once WebDyne is installed and initialised to work with a web server, any file with a .psp extension is treated as a WebDyne source file. It is parsed for WebDyne or pseudo-tags (such as <perl> and <block> for WebDyne, or <start_html>, <popup_menu> for which are interpreted and executed on the server. The resulting output is then sent to the browser.

Pages are parsed once, then optionally stored in a partially compiled format - speeding up subsequent processing by avoiding the need to re-parse a page each time it is loaded. WebDyne works with common web server persistant/resident Perl modules such as mod_perl and FastCGI to provide fast dynamic content.

Documentation ^

A full man page with usage and examples is installed with the WebDyne module. Further information is available from the WebDyne web page, with a snapshot of current documentation in PDF format available in the module source /doc directory.
