I’m looking at the documentation at http://www.embperl.org/embperl/pod/doc/doc13/HTML/Embperl.-page-3-.htm and i don’t see a way to use a string of raw html as an input to Execute.


Do you have an example i can work from?

Unless I'm misunderstanding you could always call execute with the $user_html string as input:


From memory Execute allows a scalar as input rather than a filename.

Hi, all.

I have a page that takes html created by users

However, the embperl formdata structures don't seem to be aware of it.

Given parameters like this:

%fdat = {
       'answer_1' => 'one'
       , 'answer_2' => 'two'


@ffld = [
       , 'answer_2

My user generated html parameter:

$user_html = "Answer2: <input id='answer_2' name='answer_2' type='text'>";

And my epl html contents is:

Answer1: <input id='answer_1' name='answer_1'><br>
[+ $user_html +]


The result I will get is:     {just pretend the brackets are textfields in html}

Answer1: [ one ]
Answer2: [        ]


I would like both text fields filled in with the form data, so clearly, the formdata processing must come after the embperl commands have executed, but that doesn't seem to be the case and i can't seem to find the appropriate options to direct Embperl to do so in this case.

How do i get the user generated html to be processed along with the epl html, so the form data structures work upon all the html as intended?
Could someone point me in the right direction, while I hunt through the documentation?
