Embedding Code in Templates

Templating System : Developer Guide : User Guide

There are various ways to use Tcl in ADPs like ASP or JSP.

You can use the <% ... %> and <%= ... %> tags just as in an ADP page handled by the AOLserver. For examples, see the section "embedded tcl" on the demonstration page.

Generally, avoid putting escaped Tcl code in adp files, or generating HTML fragments in Tcl procedures. It subverts the separation of code and layout, one of the benefits of templating. Embedded Tcl makes templates nonportable to ACS/Java.
