       Text::MicroMason::PassVariables - Pass template data as variables


       Instead of using this class directly, pass its name to be mixed in:

         use Text::MicroMason;
         my $mason = Text::MicroMason->new( -PassVariables );

       Use the standard compile and execute methods to parse and evaluate templates:

         print $mason->compile( text=>$template )->( 'name'=>'Dave' );
         print $mason->execute( text=>$template, 'name'=>'Dave' );

       Templates can now access their arguments as global variables:

         Welcome, <% $name %>!


       Like Text::Template, this package passes in template arguments as package variables. For
       example, if you pass in an argument list of "foo => 23", it will set the variable $foo in
       the package your template is compiled in.  This allows template code to refer to $name
       rather than $ARGS{name}.

       The strict pragma is disabled to facilitate these variable references.

       Caution: Please note that this approach has some drawbacks, including the risk of
       clobbering global variables used for other purposes. It is included primarily to allow the
       TextTemplate module to emulate the behavior of Text::Template, and for quick-and-dirty
       simple templates where succinctness is more important than robustness.

   Supported Attributes
           Target package namespace. Defaults to Text::MicroMason::Commands.

   Private Methods
           Adds Perl fragments to handle package and symbol table munging.

           Modifies Perl subroutine to embed the target package namespace.

           Performs symbol table munging to transfer the contents of an arguments hash into
           variables in a target namespace.


       The interface being emulated is described in Text::Template.

       For an overview of this templating framework, see Text::MicroMason.

       This is a mixin class intended for use with Text::MicroMason::Base.
