Subject Embperl::Object::Execute syntax question
Date Sun, 04 May 2008 03:40:06 GMT
I have a an Embperl::Object Web site with one .epl file that in some  
cases should use the template of the rest of the site, and in other  
cases should be templateless, depending on the state of a variable.   
So I have given it a different extension than the other files on the  
site to exclude it from Embperl::Object by default, and am trying to  
call Embperl::Object::Execute for the cases in which it does need to  
use the template.

Here is a simplified test version of that page:

use Embperl::Object;
$to = "cruel";
$testpage = "<h2>test</h2><p>hello [+ $to +] world</p>";
Embperl::Object::Execute({ inputfile => '/var/www/press',
                              input => \$testpage,
                              escmode => 7,
                              object_base => 'base.epl',
                              appname => 'terminuspress'

 From experimentation, I've found that "inputfile" can be set to any  
existing file or directory; it is ignored but can't be omitted.  I've  
also found that "appname" should be the same as the rest of the site.

The problem is that "object_base" is not used: the template is not  
applied.  Whether I include or exclude the full path doesn't matter.

Any ideas what is wrong?
