HTML::Template::Compiled::Lazy(3) Lazy Loading for HTML::Template::Compiled


use HTML::Template::Compiled::Lazy;
my $htcl = HTML::Template::Compiled::Lazy->new(
# usual parameters for HTML::Template::Compiled
# file wasn't compiled yet
print $htcl->output; # now compile and output!


This class does not compile templates before calling "output()". This includes "TMPL_INCLUDE"s. This can be useful in CGI environments. If your template has got a lot of includes HTML::Template::Compiled will compile all of them, even if they aren't needed because they are never reached (in a "TMPL_IF", for example).

HTML::Template::Compiled::Lazy also won't complain if the file does not exist - it will complain when you call "output()", though.
