Template::Plugin::Class(3) allow calling of class methods on arbitrary classes


[% USE foo = Class('Foo') %]
[% foo.bar %]


Template::Plugin::Class allows you to call class methods on arbitrary classes. One use for this is in Class::DBI style applications, where you may do somthing like this:

  [% USE cd = Class('Music::CD') %]
  [% FOREACH disc = cd.retrieve_all %]
  [% disc.artist %] - [% disc.title %]
  [% END %]


You won't be able to directly call "AUTOLOAD" or "DESTROY" methods on the remote class. This shouldn't be a huge hardship.


Apart from the mentioned caveat, none currently known. If you find any please contact the author.
