       Template::Modules - Template Toolkit Modules

Template Toolkit Modules
       This documentation provides an overview of the different	modules	that
       comprise	the Template Toolkit.

       The Template module is the front-end to the Template Toolkit for	Perl

	   use Template;
	   my $tt = Template->new();
	   $tt->process('hello.html', message => 'Hello	World');

       The Template::Base module implements a base class from which the	other
       Template	Toolkit	modules	are derived.  It implements common
       functionality for creating objects, error reporting, debugging, and so

       The Template::Config module defines the configuration of	the Template
       Toolkit for your	system.	It is an example of a factory module which is
       responsible for instantiating the various other modules used in the
       Template	Toolkit.

       For example, the	Template::Config module	defines	the $STASH package
       variable	which indicates	which version of the Template::Stash you are
       using by	default.  If you elected to use	the faster XS stash when you
       installed the Template Toolkit, then this will be set as:

	   $STASH = 'Template::Stash::XS';

       Otherwise you'll	get the	regular	Perl stash:

	   $STASH = 'Template::Stash';

       This approach means that	other parts of the Template Toolkit don't have
       to worry	about which stash you're using.	 They just ask the
       Template::Config	module to create a stash of the	right kind.

       The Template::Constants defines a number	of constants that are used by
       the Template Toolkit.

       For example, the	":chomp" tagset	defines	the "CHOMP_???"	constants that
       can be used with	the "PRE_CHOMP"	and "POST_CHOMP" configuration

	   use Template::Constants ':chomp';
	   my $tt = Template->new({

       The Template::Context module defines a runtime context in which
       templates are processed.	A context keeps	track of all the templates,
       variables, plugins, and other resources that are	available (either
       directly	or through delegate objects) and provides methods to fetch,
       store, and perform various operations on	them.

       The Template::Document module implements	a compiled template document
       object.	This is	generated by the Template::Parser module.

       The Template::Exception module implements an exception object which is
       used for	runtime	error reporting.

       The Template::Filters module implements a filter	provider.  It includes
       the core	collection of filters that can be used via the "FILTER"

       The Template::Iterator module implements	a data iterator	which steps
       through each item in a list in turn.  It	is used	by the "FOREACH"
       directive.  Within a "FOREACH" block, the "loop"	variable always
       references the current iterator object.

	   [%  FOREACH item IN list;
		 IF loop.first;
		    # first item in loop
		 ELSIF loop.last;
		    # last item	in loop
		    # any other	item in	loop

       The Template::Namespace::Constants module is used internally to
       represent constants. These can be resolved immediately at the point
       that a template is compiled.

       The Template::Parser module is used to parse a source template and turn
       it into Perl code which can be executed.

       The Template::Plugin module is a	base class for Template	Toolkit
       plugins that can	be loaded on demand from within	a template using the
       "USE" directive.

       The Template::Plugins module is the plugins provider.  It loads and
       prepares	plugins	as and when they are requested from within a template.

       The Template::Provider module is	responsible for	loading, compiling and
       caching templates.

       The Template::Service module implements a service layer that sits just
       behind the Template module, and just in front of	a Template::Context.
       It handles each request to process a template (forwarded	from the
       Template	module). It adds any headers and/or footers (specified via the
       "PRE_PROCESS" and "POST_PROCESS"	options), applies any wrapper (the
       "WRAPPER" option) and catches any errors	returned (the "ERRORS"

       The Template::Stash module is used to fetch and store template
       variables.  It implements all of	the magic associated with the dot

       The Template::Stash::XS module is a high-speed implementation of
       Template::Stash written in C.

       The Template::Test module is used to automate the Template Toolkit test
