NAME
    Template::Tiny - Template Toolkit reimplemented in as little code as
    possible

SYNOPSIS
      my $template = Template::Tiny->new;
      
  $template->process( <<'END_TEMPLATE', { foo => 'World' } );
      Hello [% foo %]!
      END_TEMPLATE

DESCRIPTION
    WARNING: THIS MODULE IS EXPERIMENTAL AND SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT
    NOTICE

    YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

    Template::Tiny is a reimplementation of a partial subset of the Template
    Toolkit, in as few lines of code as possible.

    It is intended for use in light-usage, low-memory, or low-cpu templating
    situations, where you may need to upgrade to the full feature set in the
    future, or if you want the familiarity of TT-style templates.

    It is intended to have fully-compatible template and stash usage, with a
    limited by similar Perl API.

    Unlike Template Toolkit, Template::Tiny will process templates without a
    compile phase (but despite this is still quicker, owing to heavy use of
    the Perl regular expression engine.

  SUPPORTED USAGE
    Only the default "[% %]" tag style is supported.

    Both the [%+ +%] style explicit whitespace and the [%- -%] style
    explicit chomp are support, although the [%+ +%] version is unneeded as
    Template::Tiny does not support default-enabled PRE_CHOMP or POST_CHOMP.

    Variable expressions in the form foo.bar.baz are supported.

    Appropriate simple behaviours for ARRAY reference, HASH reference and
    objects are supported, but not "VMethods" such as array lengths.

    IF, ELSE and UNLESS conditions are supported, but only with simple
    foo.bar.baz conditions.

    Support for looping is available, in the most simple [% FOREACH item IN
    list %] form.

    All four IF/ELSE/UNLESS/FOREACH control structures are able to be nested
    to arbitrary depth.

    The treatment of "_private" hash and method keys is compatible with
    Template Toolkit, returning null or false rather than the actual content
    of the hash key or method.

    Anything beyond this is currently out of scope

METHODS
  new
      my $template = Template::Tiny->new;

    The "new" constructor is provided for compatibility with Template
    Toolkit, but is not strictly necesary.

  process
      $template->process( \$input, $vars );

    The "process" method is called to process a template. The firsts
    parameter is a reference to a text string containing the template text.
    A reference to a hash may be passed as the second parameter containing
    definitions of template variables.

SUPPORT
    Bugs should be reported via the CPAN bug tracker at

    <http://rt.cpan.org/NoAuth/ReportBug.html?Queue=Template-Tiny>
