=head1 NAME

Template::Plugin::GD::Constants - Interface to GD module constants


    [% USE gdc = GD.Constants %]

    # --> the constants gdc.gdBrushed, gdc.gdSmallFont, gdc.GD_CMP_IMAGE
    #     are now available


    [% FILTER null;
        USE gdc = GD.Constants;
        USE im  = GD.Image(200,100);
        black = im.colorAllocate(0  ,0,  0);
        red   = im.colorAllocate(255,0,  0);
        r = im.string(gdc.gdLargeFont, 10, 10, "Large Red Text", red);
        im.png | stdout(1);


The GD.Constants plugin provides access to the various GD module's
constants (such as gdBrushed, gdSmallFont, gdTransparent, GD_CMP_IMAGE
etc).  When is used in perl it exports various contstants
into the caller's namespace.  This plugin makes those exported
constants available as template variables.

See L<Template::Plugin::GD::Image> and L<GD> for further examples and
