NAME

Template::Plugin::Procedural - Base class for procedural plugins

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



    package Template::Plugin::LWPSimple;
    use base qw(Template::Plugin::Procedural);
    use LWP::Simple;  # exports get
    1;

    [% USE LWPSimple %]
    [% LWPSimple.get("http://www.tt2.org/") %]



DESCRIPTION

Template::Plugin::Procedural is a base class for Template Toolkit plugins that causes defined subroutines to be called directly rather than as a method. Essentially this means that subroutines will not receive the class name or object as its first argument.

This is most useful when creating plugins for modules that normally work by exporting subroutines that do not expect such additional arguments.

Despite the fact that subroutines will not be called in an OO manner, inheritance still function as normal. A class that uses Template::Plugin::Procedural can be subclassed and both subroutines defined in the subclass and subroutines defined in the original class will be available to the Template Toolkit and will be called without the class/object argument.
