=head1 NAME

HTML::Chunks::Super - Chunks with superpowers

=head1 VERSION



The mutant spawn of HTML::Chunks, this module has all of the abilities of its
parent plus additional emerging superpowers.  The first enhancement to be added
is conditional processing.  For full chunk documentation, please see L<HTML:::Chunks>.
Only HTML::Chunks::Super enhancements will be discussed here.


While conditional processing does indeed blur the lines between layout/markup
and actual programming logic, it can be very powerful when used sparingly
and appropriately.  We urge you to use this ability only for simple display
logic, keeping the chunk side of life mostly pure and uncomplicated.  With
great power comes great responsibility. :-)

That warning aside, here is the extended chunk syntax:

 <!-- IF condition -->
 normal chunk stuff
 <!-- ELSIF condition -->
 more chunks
 <!-- ELSE -->
 chunky chunk of chunks
 <!-- ENDIF -->

The C<condition> can by most any valid perl expression and will usually
reference one or more chunk data elements.  See the L<HTML::Chunks>
documentation for a full descripton of data elements, but as a refresher,
they look like C<##this##> and refer to dynamic data that is merged into
a chunk at run-time.  For use in conditionals, you can treat them as
read-only scalars.

=head2 Some example conditions


=item ##foo##

True if data element C<##foo##> has a true value (in the perl sense of "true")

=item ##foo## =~ /^bar/

True if C<##foo##> begins with "bar"

=item ##foo## !~ /\W/

True if C<##foo##> contains no non-word characters

=item ##num## >= 1 and ##num## <= 10

True if C<##num##> is between 1 and 10 inclusive


You get the idea.  Most comparisons and conditions that are possible in straight perl will be possible here as well.
