Should be easy: Including text

I'm using a perl CGI script to create an HTML page based on certain conditions.

I would like to include text from other files (sort of like a server side include), but I can't seem to do this within the cgi script.

What I'd like to do is almost like a "Location:" redirection, but instead it would just include the text in the specified file rather than redirect the browser to the new url. Then I could also include text from one or two other files, depending on the circumstances.

print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";

if (Condition 1) {
   &PFile("File to use if condition1 is true") || handle an error message here.
}

if (Condition 2) {
  &PFile("File to use if condition 2 is true") || handle an error here.
}
 ....


sub PFile ($) {
   my($file) = shift;
   open(F, "<$file") || return 0;
   while (<F>) {
     print;
  }
  close(F);
}
