Template::Plugin::Class - allow calling of class methods on arbitrary classes
[% USE foo = Class('Foo') %]
[% foo.bar %]
Template::Plugin::Class allows you to call class methods on arbitrary classes. One use for this is in Class::DBI style applications, where you may do somthing like this:
[% USE cd = Class('Music::CD') %]
[% FOREACH disc = cd.retrieve_all %]
[% disc.artist %] - [% disc.title %]
[% END %]
You won't be able to directly call AUTOLOAD or DESTROY methods on the remote class. This shouldn't be a huge hardship.
Apart from the mentioned caveat, none currently known. If you find any please contact the author.
