NAME

Template::Plugin::Roman - Filter for converting Arabic numerals to Roman

VERSION

Version 1.0

SYNOPSIS

This module provides a Template::Toolkit filter plugin for converting Arabic numerals into Roman. The actual conversion is performed by Math::Roman. The same restrictions imposed by that module are in effect here (4499 is the largest "real" Roman number - everything after that will simply have too many 'M's).

Using the filter is straightforward (assume that your controller has placed (localtime)[5] in a stash key called current_year):

    [% USE Roman %]

    The year is [% current_year | roman %].

METHODS

init

Initialize filter object.

filter

Implement filter.
