       Template::Provider::FromDATA - Load templates from your __DATA__ section


           use Template;
           use Template::Provider::FromDATA;

           # Create the provider
           my $provider = Template::Provider::FromDATA->new( {
               CLASSES => __PACKAGE__
           } );

           # Add the provider to the config
           my $template = Template->new( {
               # ...
               LOAD_TEMPLATES => [ $provider ]
           } );

           # Render a template
           $template->process( 'mytemplate', { bar => 'Bar' } );

           # ...and now the templates


           Foo [% bar %]

           Baz, [% qux %]?


       This module allows you to store your templates inline with your code in the "__DATA__"
       section. It will search any number of classes specified.


       If you have two templates with the same name, this module will not understand the
       difference, it will simply return the first one found. If you wish, you can specify a
       fully qualified template name by prefixing the template with the module name (using "-"
       instead of "::" as a namespace separator), adding a "/" to separate the module name from
       the template name.

           $template->process( 'My-Templates/mytemplate', { bar => 'Bar' } );


           perl Makefile.PL
           make test
           make install


   new( \%OPTIONS )
       Create a new instance of the provider. You can specify a list of classes to be searched
       for templates via the "CLASSES" option. By omitting this option it will search "main".

           # defaults to 'main'
           $provider = Template::Provider::FromDATA->new;

           # look for templates in 'Foo'
           $provider = Template::Provider::FromDATA->new( {
               CLASSES => 'Foo'
           } );

           # look for templates in 'Foo::Bar' and 'Foo::Baz'
           $provider = Template::Provider::FromDATA->new( {
               CLASSES => [ 'Foo::Bar', 'Foo::Baz' ]
           } );

       By default, template data is lazy-loaded as they it is  requested. If you wish to load up
       all template data upon initializtion, you can use the "PRELOAD" option.

           $provider = Template::Provider::FromDATA->new( {
               PRELOAD => 1
           } );

   _init( \%OPTIONS )
       A subclassed method to handle the options passed to "new()".

   fetch( $name )
       This is a subclassed method that will load a template via "_fetch()" if a non-reference
       argument is passed.

   _load( $name )
       Loads the template via the "get_file()" sub and sets some cache information.

   get_file( $class, $template )
       This method searches through $class for a template named $template. Returns the contents
       on success, undef on failure.

       This function was mostly borrowed from Catalyst::Helper's "get_file" function.


       An arrayref of the class names containing our templates.

       A hashref of file and template data.
