[ic] Templates

The files in template/components are snippets of HTML and Interchange 
code that can be included in pages.  For example, look at the following
file in the Construct demo '/catalogs/construct/pages/results.html'

-----------snip from results.html---------------

[if scratch did_order]
[include file="templates/components/cart_display"]
[set did_order][/set]

This bit of code shows you how the template/components works.  If the
scratch variable 'did_order' is set (to 1 or any true value), the file
templates/components/cart_display will be inserted right there.  In this
particular case, the cart_display is used to display the contents that a
user has just ordered.  The variable did_order gets set to 1 when you
click the buy button (this occurs in set munge_quantity...which is a
whole other can of worms I'm sure you'll enjoy!!):

[set munge_quantity]
 $Scratch->{did_order} = 1;

Hope this helps... good luck!
