No, that's not what I'm talking about. Systems like Template Toolkit allow you to pass an object to a template as the value of one of the hash keys you pass in. You can then call methods on the object from the template and they're called just like normal method. For instance, given the dummy class:

package Foo; sub new { return bless ( { count => 1 } ) } sub count { $_[0]->{count}++ } 1;

And the following template code:

use Foo; use Template; my $template = Template->new(); $template->process( \*DATA, { bar => Foo->new() } ) || die "Cannot process: ", $template->error(), "\n"; __DATA__ I am calling methods on the object named 'bar': Call: [% bar.count %] Call: [% bar.count %] Call: [% bar.count %]

You'll see:

I am calling methods on the object named 'bar': Call: 1 Call: 2 Call: 3

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
