HTML::Display::Common(3) routines common to all HTML::Display subclasses

__PACKAGE__->new %ARGS

Creates a new object as a blessed hash. The passed arguments are stored within the hash. If you need to do other things in your constructor, remember to call this constructor as well :

  package HTML::Display::WhizBang;
  use parent 'HTML::Display::Common';
  sub new {
    my ($class) = shift;
    my %args = @_;
    my $self = $class->SUPER::new(%args);
    # do stuff

$display->display %ARGS

This is the routine used to display the HTML to the user. It takes the following parameters :

  html     => SCALAR containing the HTML
  file     => SCALAR containing the filename of the file to be displayed
  base     => optional base url for the HTML, so that relative links still work
  location    (synonymous to base)

Basic usage :

  my $html = "<html><body><h1>Hello world!</h1></body></html>";
  my $browser = HTML::Display->new();
  $browser->display( html => $html );

Location parameter :

If you fetch a page from a remote site but still want to display it to the user, the "location" parameter comes in very handy :

  my $html = '<html><body><img src="/images/hp0.gif"></body></html>';
  my $browser = HTML::Display->new();
  # This will display part of the Google logo
  $browser->display( html => $html, base => '' );
