NAME

Template::Plugin::POSIX - TT2 plugin to import POSIX functions

VERSION

This document describes Template::Plugin::POSIX 0.05 released on 12 March, 2007.

SYNOPSIS

  [% USE POSIX %]

  [% POSIX.log(100) %]
  [% POSIX.rand(1) %]
  [% POSIX.exp(2) %]
  [% POSIX.sprintf("%.0f", 3.5) %]
  [% POSIX.pow(2, 3) %]
  [% POSIX.ceil(3.8) %]
  [% POSIX.floor(3.8) %]
  [% POSIX.sin(3.14) %]
  [% POSIX.cos(0) %]

DESCRIPTION

As a TT programmer, I found it quite inflexible to use the Template Toolkit's presentation language Language due to the very limited vocabulary. So I wrote this little plugin in order to open a window for the template file to the full richness of most POSIX functions, making the Template language a "programming language" in a much more serious sense.

Please keep in mind I just used AUTOLOAD, eval, and Data::Dumper to do the magic here.

If you're looking for even more functions, I suggest you take a look at the Template::Plugin::Perl module which exports the excellent POSIX repertoire.

METHODS

new

Constructor called by the TT2 template system

throw

TT2 exception handling procedure.

TODO

  • Add more unit tests.

SOURCE CONTROL
