How to print html

How would I print out embedded html in perl.  For example this works

print <<EOF;
<html>
<head>
<title>My HTML page</title>
</head>
<body>
<br>
First Message to print out
<br>
Second message to print out
<br>
Third message to print
</body>
</html>
EOF

however I want to add an if statement to determine which message to print out.   I tried the following with no luck

print <<EOF;
<html>
<head>
<title>My HTML page</title>
</head>
<body>
<br>
EOF

if($test == 0){
print <<EOF;
First Message to print out
<br>
EOF
}
else{
print <<HTML;
Second message to print out
<br>
HTML
}
print <<HTML;
</body>
</html>
HTML

print $test == 0 ? $firstmsg : $secondmsg;

There are other ways to do it, but what was unlucky about what you tried?

For this type of stuff, it is usually easier to use one of the HTML template modules.  Eithter HTML::Template or Template Toolkit:
