NAME

Template::Plugin::Dumper - Plugin interface to Data::Dumper

SYNOPSIS

    [% USE Dumper %]
    
    [% Dumper.dump(variable) %]
    [% Dumper.dump_html(variable) %]

DESCRIPTION

This is a very simple Template Toolkit Plugin Interface to the Data::Dumper module. A Dumper object will be instantiated via the following directive:

    [% USE Dumper %]

As a standard plugin, you can also specify its name in lower case:

    [% USE dumper %]

The Data::Dumper Pad, Indent and Varname options are supported as constructor arguments to affect the output generated. See Data::Dumper for further details.

    [% USE dumper(Indent=0, Pad="<br>") %]

These options can also be specified in lower case.

    [% USE dumper(indent=0, pad="<br>") %]

METHODS

There are two methods supported by the Dumper object. Each will output into the template the contents of the variables passed to the object method.

dump()

Generates a raw text dump of the data structure(s) passed

    [% USE Dumper %]
    [% Dumper.dump(myvar) %]
    [% Dumper.dump(myvar, yourvar) %]

dump_html()

Generates a dump of the data structures, as per dump(), but with the characters <, > and & converted to their equivalent HTML entities and newlines converted to <br>.

    [% USE Dumper %]
    [% Dumper.dump_html(myvar) %]
