Default best way to create a table in Perl

Code:
print "<table border=\"1\" bordercolor=\"#000000\">";
    print "<tr>";
        print "<td>";
            print $weePit;
        print "</td>";
    print "</tr>";
print "</table>";
Is this the best way to create a table in Perl?

(i am a MAJOR nooB!)

crmpicco - there's more than one way to do it - just printing it may be ok, though you may want to use a heredoc thus:

print <<EOF
<table style="border:1px solid #000;">
  <tr>
    <td>$WeePit</td>
  </tr>
</table>

EOF

# more code


You could use the CGI.pm way:

use strict;
use CGI;
my $q = new CGI;
print $q->header( "text/html" ),
$q->start_html( -title => "Table Example" ),
    $q->h1( "Table Example" ),
    $q->p( "This is a table.” ),
    $q->table( {style => 'broder:1px solid #000;'},
        $q->Tr( {align => "center"},
            [ $q->th( [ 'Heading 1', 'Heading Two', 'Heading 3' ] ),
              $q->td( ['x','y',$WeePit] ) ] )
        )
    ),
$q->end_html;


You could use HTML::Template, and a template like this:


<html>
<head>
  <title>Table Example</table>
</head>
<body>
  <table style="border:1px solid #000;">
    <tr>
      <td><TMPL_VAR NAME='WeePit'></td>
    </tr>
  </table>
</body>
</html>


I'd probably stick with just using print for now, until you have a better handle on perl.
