example 3-11

The indenting in this example is wrong. The BLOCK items defined inside the VIEW should be indented, as should the items defined in the 'people' list, at the end of ex 3-11 on page 115.

Output from Example 5-13

Example 5-13 shows some text that is passed through an HTML entity-izing filter, the example is a price written in UK pounds, the pound sign in the price should be converted to the correct HTML pound entity to demonstrate the filter. The output of the example still shows the original pound sign instead the correct pound entity.

Second paragraph of section "Simple pre-process and wrapper Templates"

The text reads "... It sets a single variable, msg. We will be displaying this value...", but the variable in question is called "message" --- rather than "msg" --- elsewhere in the text and Examples.

Note from the Author or Editor:
As described. Replace "msg" with "message".

For consistency with example 11-6, the $* should be changed to $@, so the example should read: ttree -f [% dir %]/etc/ttree.cfg $@

Example 11-44. Listing

The previous item of an FOREACH iteration is found by loop.prev _NOT_ by loop.last. So the example should be spelled: # set next/last if this is the actual page page.prev = map.page.${loop.prev};
