- SEE ALSO
The method it uses is to write anonymous variables, in the same way you would in Perl. The following shows some examples.
One advantage of doing it in this method is that you do not have to co-ordinate variable names between your HTML templates and Perl. You could use a simple Template Toolkit phrase like the following to get data into your HTML templates.
The variables you dump can also be of arbitrary depth and complexity, with a few limitations.
- ARRAY and HASH only
- No Circular References
All methods are called as methods directly, in the form
If needed, the argument can even be a normal text string, although it wouldn't do a lot to it. :)
undef if an error is found.
var_dump $name, STRUCT
As above, but the
var name = struct;. Note that the method WILL put the trailing semi-colon on the string.
Returns true is a scalar is numeric, or false otherwise.
You may also access method in using an instantiated object.
Options: quote_char : Set the quote_char for stirng scalars. Default is '"'.
The following are a little less general, but may be of some use.
var_scalar $name, \$scalar
Creates a named variable from a scalar reference.
var_array $name, \@array
Creates a named variable from an array reference.
var_hash $name, \%hash
Creates a named variable from a hash reference.
