Static Content Management -- Baking Pages rather than Frying them - PHP Development

    Default Static Content Management -- Baking Pages rather than Frying them

    All

    I'm looking for a tool or series of tools to help me manage the
    content of a website. My request is odd because I have no need to
    manage content on-the-fly. I would be happy to regenerate pages each
    time the content is updated.

    I'd need to be able to --
    + supply a 'template' HTML file
    + a file (or optionally a database) to pad out the template
    + include dynamically created navigation -- breadcrumbs and main menu
    for each page

    I'd be happy to work in Perl or PHP, but must be able to use these
    tools on a Windows platform. My preference would be for Open Source
    software.

    Can you let me know what the 'state of the art' is in this niche area?
    I have looked at some Perl scripts, but they seem not to work on
    Windows (and this is backed up by other user's comments).

    Thanks

    i can't offer you a shrink wrapped app. sorry.

    however, this sort of site building i've done plenty of.

    with only two basic tools, make and the m4 macro processor, you can
    set this up very easily.

    both of these are open source tools by GNU that i believe will work on
    windows.

    get in touch and i'll chat you up about this and get you started.
