=head1 NAME

Template::Plugin::Iterator - Plugin to create iterators (Template::Iterator)

=head1 SYNOPSIS

    [% USE iterator(list, args) %]
    
    [% FOREACH item = iterator %]
       [% '<ul>' IF iterator.first %]
       <li>[% item %]
       [% '</ul>' IF iterator.last %]
    [% END %]

=head1 DESCRIPTION

The iterator plugin provides a way to create a L<Template::Iterator> object 
to iterate over a data set.  An iterator is implicitly automatically by the
L<FOREACH> directive.  This plugin allows the iterator to be explicitly created
with a given name.
