SYNOPSIS

Top Close Open
[% USE Dumper %]

[% Dumper.dump(variable) %]
[% Dumper.dump_html(variable) %]

DESCRIPTION

Top Close Open

This is a very simple Template Toolkit Plugin Interface to the Data::Dumper module. A Dumper object will be instantiated via the following directive:

[% USE Dumper %]

As a standard plugin, you can also specify its name in lower case:

[% USE dumper %]

The Data::Dumper Pad, Indent and Varname options are supported as constructor arguments to affect the output generated. See Data::Dumper for further details.

[% USE dumper(Indent=0, Pad="<br>") %]

These options can also be specified in lower case.

[% USE dumper(indent=0, pad="<br>") %]

METHODS

Top Close Open

There are two methods supported by the Dumper object. Each will output into the template the contents of the variables passed to the object method.

dump()

Top Close Open

Generates a raw text dump of the data structure(s) passed

[% USE Dumper %]
[% Dumper.dump(myvar) %]
[% Dumper.dump(myvar, yourvar) %]

dump_html()

Top Close Open

Generates a dump of the data structures, as per dump(), but with the characters <, > and & converted to their equivalent HTML entities and newlines converted to <br>.

[% USE Dumper %]
[% Dumper.dump_html(myvar) %]
