As a WebGUI user/developer I (and all other WebGUI people :-) have the need to be able to use variables with dots, and this is not possible at the moment. However there's a simple solution:

in the HTML::Template::Expr module the definition of 'var' in the $GRAMMAR section needs the inclusion of the dot character:

var : /[A-Za-z_][A-Za-z0-9_.]*/ { \\\$item[1] }

 

This way dots are allowed inside the variable names! Would it be possible to include this solution in the next release?

Cheers, Roel Plieger.
