=head1 NAME

Template::Stash::XS - High-speed variable stash written in C

=head1 SYNOPSIS

    use Template;
    use Template::Stash::XS;

    my $stash = Template::Stash::XS->new(\%vars);
    my $tt2   = Template->new({ STASH => $stash });

=head1 DESCRIPTION

The Template:Stash::XS module is an implementation of the
Template::Stash written in C.  The "XS" in the name refers to Perl's
XS extension system for interfacing Perl to C code.  It works just
like the regular Perl implementation of Template::Stash but runs about
twice as fast.

The easiest way to use the XS stash is to configure the Template
Toolkit to use it by default.  You can do this at installation time
(when you run C<perl Makefile.PL>) by answering 'y' to the questions:

    Do you want to build the XS Stash module?      y
    Do you want to use the XS Stash by default?    y

See the F<INSTALL> file distributed with the Template Toolkit for further
details on installation.

If you don't elect to use the XS stash by default then you should use
the C<STASH> configuration item when you create a new Template object.
This should reference an XS stash object that you have created
manually.

    use Template;
    use Template::Stash::XS;

    my $stash = Template::Stash::XS->new(\%vars);
    my $tt2   = Template->new({ STASH => $stash });

Alternately, you can set the C<$Template::Config::STASH> package
variable like so:

    use Template;
    use Template::Config;

    $Template::Config::STASH = 'Template::Stash::XS';

    my $tt2 = Template->new();

The XS stash will then be automatically used.  

If you want to use the XS stash by default and don't want to
re-install the Template Toolkit, then you can manually modify the
C<Template/Config.pm> module near line 42 to read:

    $STASH = 'Template::Stash::XS';
