NAME

Excel::Template::Container::Loop

PURPOSE

To provide looping

NODE NAME

LOOP

INHERITANCE

Excel::Template::Container

ATTRIBUTES

  • NAME

    This is the name of the loop. It's used to identify within the parameter set what variables to expose to the children nodes each iteration.

CHILDREN

None

EFFECTS

None

DEPENDENCIES

None

USAGE

  <loop name="LOOPY">
    ... Children here ...
  </loop>

In the above example, the children nodes would have access to the LOOPY array of hashes as parameters. Each iteration through the array would expose a different hash of parameters to the children.

These loops work just like HTML::Template's loops. (I promise I'll give more info here!)

There is one difference - I prefer using Perl-like scoping, so accessing of variables outside the LOOP scope from within is perfectly acceptable. You can also hide outside variables with inner values, if you desire, just like Perl.
