Template::Parser::LocalizeNewlines - Drop-in replacement Template::Parser that fixes bad newlines


Template::Parser has a problem with PRE_CHOMP and related options. They only work on local newlines. If a Template Toolkit instance on a Unix host encounters DOS newlines in a Template, it will fail to chomp the newline correctly, with potentially disasterous results.

Template::Parser::LocalizeNewlines is a drop-in replacement that behaves EXACTLY the same (and is a subclass of) as a normal parser, except that before it goes to parse the template content, it applies the newline localisation regex describes in http://ali.as/devel/newlines.html.

Using this Module

When creating your Template instance, simple pass an instance of this object along to the constructor.


This module is identical to Template::Parser.
