Tutorial: HTML::Mason -- the way PHP should have been, Thomas Ammnitzb÷ll-Bach

HTML::Mason is a mod_perl handler, which makes it possible to write web pages mixing HTML and Perl source code. The phenomenon is known from PHP, where the programmatic part is embedded in special tags. But HTML::Mason is also component based meaning - a web page can be built from pieces which are maintained separately.
