MicroMason::PassVariables(3) User Contributed Perl Documentation MicroMason::PassVariables(3)

Text::MicroMason::PassVariables - 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 evalute 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.

Target package namespace. Defaults to Text::MicroMason::Commands.

Adds Perl fragments to handle package and symbol table munging.
Modifies Perl subroutine to embed the target package namespace.
Performs symbol table munging to transfer the contents of an arguments hash into variables in a target namespace.

The interface being emulated is described in Text::Template.
For an overview of this templating framework, see Text::MicroMason.
This is a mixin class intended for use with Text::MicroMason::Base.
