Even without looking, I'm sure you're trying something like .if $(var) = Xyz. Well, this won't work. Htmlpp is lazy, and sends all its .if commands to Perl to evaluate. Perl thinks that '=' is an assignment, not a comparison. Which always works, or perhaps never does, but certainly will not change depending on the value of $(var). To cut a long story short, use 'eq' and buy the Camel Book.
Well, maybe you made a mistake. For example, this is wrong:
if $(TITLE) eq "first second"You have to enclose both arguments in quotes, like this:
if "$(TITLE)" eq "first second"
Put it into a common directory like /usr/local/bin; make htmlpp executable (chmod +x htmlpp); make sure its .i and .pl files are in the same place; put this directory on the PERLLIB path, and put it on your PATH too. That should work. If you don't have access to /usr/local/bin (i.e. you're not root, which if you were you'd probably not need help at this point) then make a bin directory under your login directory and add $HOME/bin to your path.
Redefine the $(EXT) variable.
