=head1 NAME

Template::Plugin::Dumper - Plugin interface to Data::Dumper

=head1 SYNOPSIS

    [% USE Dumper %]
    
    [% Dumper.dump(variable) %]
    [% Dumper.dump_html(variable) %]

=head1 DESCRIPTION

This is a very simple Template Toolkit Plugin Interface to the L<Data::Dumper>
module.  A C<Dumper> object will be instantiated via the following directive:

    [% USE Dumper %]

As a standard plugin, you can also specify its name in lower case:

    [% USE dumper %]

The C<Data::Dumper> C<Pad>, C<Indent> and C<Varname> options are supported
as constructor arguments to affect the output generated.  See L<Data::Dumper>
for further details.

    [% USE dumper(Indent=0, Pad="<br>") %]

These options can also be specified in lower case.

    [% USE dumper(indent=0, pad="<br>") %]

=head1 METHODS

There are two methods supported by the C<Dumper> object.  Each will
output into the template the contents of the variables passed to the
object method.

=head2 dump()

Generates a raw text dump of the data structure(s) passed

    [% USE Dumper %]
    [% Dumper.dump(myvar) %]
    [% Dumper.dump(myvar, yourvar) %]

=head2 dump_html()

Generates a dump of the data structures, as per L<dump()>, but with the 
characters E<lt>, E<gt> and E<amp> converted to their equivalent HTML
entities and newlines converted to E<lt>brE<gt>.

    [% USE Dumper %]
    [% Dumper.dump_html(myvar) %]
