Embperl is a system for building dynamic websites with Perl.
It gives you the power to embed Perl code in your HTML documents
and the ability to build your Web site out of small reusable objects in
an object-oriented style. You can also take advantage of all the
usual Perl modules, (including DBI for database access) use their
functionality and easily include their output in your web pages.

Embperl has several features which are especially useful for creating
HTML, including dynamic tables, form field processing, URL
escaping/unescaping, session handling, and more.

With 2.0 this feature are extented to use XML/XSLT, extent the Embperl's
syntax, build taglibs, cacheing and more.

See (english) or (german) for more information.
