Subject RE: Execute( sub =>...) and (object => ...)
Date Wed, 23 Jun 2010 03:33:24 GMT


as Andrew already wrote your object => code is quite ok, the only thing you have to take
care is that sub’s should be defined inside [! !] blocks and not inside [- -] (because only
the former get executed during the object => call)

Ok so I figured out that the Execute( param => ... ) still goes into @param not @_. Any
idea why the ( object => $template ) isn’t working?

I am attempting to #1 determine if a function is defined in a template and if so #2 call it
sending it parameters all from outside the template.


I first thought I might just grep for [$ sub name $] and if found do:


my $html;

Embperl::Execute({inputfile  => $template},

sub    => ‘name’

=> [$param1,$param2,$param3],

=> \$html});


But it doesn’t seem that “param” feeds the subroutine (and it doesn’t feed the template
either), so I can’t figure out how to get parameters to my function.


Then I thought I’d try to do:


my $object = Embperl::Execute({object  => $template});

if($object->can(‘name’)) {




But for some reason, $object is always equal to zero. Does the template need to have a package
declaration? Not sure what I’m doing wrong. Either of these ways would work, any help is
