• Use View topic Item7848 for generic doc work for TWiki-6.1.1. Use View topic Item7851 for doc work on extensions that are not part of a release. More... Close
• Anything you create or change in standard webs (Main, TWiki, Sandbox etc) will be automatically reverted on every SVN update.
Does this site look broken?. Use the LitterTray web for test cases.

This is a performance issue for a number of reasons, but most notably, as CC has pointed out many times, because of the overhead of compilation.

There is an opportunity here to factor out common code in the same way thet TWiki::Func does.

One of my favourite code fragments is :-

sub replaceVars {
  my ($format, $data) = @_;

  if (defined $data) {
    if (defined $data->{wikiname}) {
      $data->{username} = &TWiki::Func::wikiToUserName($data->{wikiname});
      $data->{wikiusername} = &TWiki::Func::userToWikiName($data->{wikiname});

    foreach my $key (keys %$data) {
      $format =~ s/\$$key/$data->{$key}/g;

  $format =~ s/\$n\b/\n/g;
  $format =~ s/\$quot\b/\"/gos;
  $format =~ s/\$percnt\b/\%/gos;
  $format =~ s/\$dollar\b/\$/gos;

  return $format;

Is this better as a core module or a Contrib?
