Text::MicroMason::PassVariables - Pass template data as variables
Instead of using this class directly, pass its name to be mixed in:
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
The strict pragma is disabled to facilitate these variable references.
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.

This is a mixin class intended for use with Text::MicroMason::Base.
