include file in include file

Threaded View
is there a way to make include file contain [A] another call for an
include file [B] ? Or is there any other trick to reach the same aim.

in the page there is a call like this for [A]:
<!--#include file="datafiles.cfx"-->

My page includes a file containing a list of pictures and their
descriptive texts. Now I have written the text in the file [A] even
though I have the texts in separated files. So I have the texts in two
copies in the same directory.

I marked the place for the include file [B] with 'XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX':
<td valign=top width=160>
<a href="P1030368.JPG">
<img src="THUMBS.cfx/t_P1030368.JPG"border=4>
onclick="return popup(this, 'notes')">
<a href="/cgi-bin/cfx/">EXIF</a><br>

ps: I know that the paths included are long, but I have not optimized
that part yet.
Unfortunately these pages are in a closed network and can not be seen.

Yes. Simple SSI won't, but many of the "programming language based"
include mechanisms will support this.

Generally think about just what it is you're trying to do logically
with your data, then do as close to that as you can, in terms of
implemented code. "Includes" are a pretty blunt tool, especially at
the level of what are fragments of output-ready HTML. If you're
working with a programming language instead though, this is very easy.
In particular, an example of repeated <img> elements where you had to
read matching pairs of data elements for the image URL and the alt
attribute would be impractical by includes, easy with language
