Subject: option to return a HTML::Element instead of string desired
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 406b
Not all templating systems are string-oriented. HTML::Seamstress is not. It works with HTML::Element instances. As such, it would be nice if the result of filling in the form could be returned as a tree for further processing by HTML::Element methods. As it stands, I am forced to parse the results of HTML::FillInForm back into a tree (even though it was a tree before HTML::FillInForm stringified it).

It would also be nice if I could pass an HTML::Element instance to fillinform() instead of a string of HTML.

TJ may disagree and re-open this, but my inclination is to reject this change request. HTML::FillInForm is an HTML processor, not an object processor. If you want something that takes objects or spits objects out, I think that's a great candidate for a sub-class, plugin, or separate project. I don't think it makes sense to add in the core HTML::FillInForm module. Mark (a new co-maintainer).
