Text::MicroMason::PassVariables(3) Pass template data as variables


Instead of using this class directly, pass its name to be mixed in:

use Text::MicroMason;
my $mason = Text::MicroMason->new( -PassVariables );

Use the standard compile and execute methods to parse and evaluate templates:

  print $mason->compile( text=>$template )->( 'name'=>'Dave' );
  print $mason->execute( text=>$template, 'name'=>'Dave' );

Templates can now access their arguments as global variables:

  Welcome, <% $name %>!


Like Text::Template, this package passes in template arguments as package variables. For example, if you pass in an argument list of "foo => 23", it will set the variable $foo in the package your template is compiled in. This allows template code to refer to $name rather than $ARGS{name}.

The strict pragma is disabled to facilitate these variable references.

Caution: Please note that this approach has some drawbacks, including the risk of clobbering global variables used for other purposes. It is included primarily to allow the TextTemplate module to emulate the behavior of Text::Template, and for quick-and-dirty simple templates where succinctness is more important than robustness.
