NAME

HTML::Template::Compiled::Classic - Provide the classic functionality like HTML::Template

SYNOPSIS

    use HTML::Template::Compiled::Classic compatible => 1;
    my $htcc = HTML::Template::Compiled::Classic->new(
        # usual parameters for HTML::Template::Compiled
    );

DESCRIPTION

This class provides features which can not be used together with features from HTML::Template::Compiled. These are:

dots in TMPL_VARs

If you want to use

  <TMPL_VAR NAME="some.var.with.dots">

you cannot use the dot-feature

  <TMPL_VAR NAME="some.hash.keys">

at the same time.

Subref variables

In HTML::Template, the following works:

    my $ht = HTML::Template->new(
        scalarref => \"<TMPL_VAR foo>",
    );
    $ht->param(foo => sub { return "bar" });
    print $ht->output; # prints 'bar'

This doesn't work in HTML::Template::Compiled (in the past it did, but as of HTC version 0.70 it won't any more, sorry).

METHODS

compiler_class

returns HTML::Template::Compiled::Compiler::Classic

validate_var

gets the var name (parsed out of NAME="foo.bar" and returns if the string is a valid var name
