NAME

Data::Phrasebook::Plain - The Simple Phrasebook Model.

SYNOPSIS

    use Data::Phrasebook;
    my $q = Data::Phrasebook->new(
        class  => 'Plain',
        loader => 'Text',
        file   => 'phrases.txt',
    );
    my $r = Data::Phrasebook->new( file => 'phrases.txt' );
    # simple keyword to phrase mapping
    my $phrase = $q->fetch($keyword);
    # keyword to phrase mapping with parameters
    $q->delimiters( qr{ \[% \s* (\w+) \s* %\] }x );
    my $phrase = $q->fetch($keyword,{this => 'that'});

DESCRIPTION

This module is the fallback or default phrasebook class. It doesn't do much except act as a very simple templating facility.

METHODS

fetch

Retrieves the specified "template" and substitutes any "keywords" for "values".
Thus, given:
    hello=Hello [% where %]!
And code:
    my $text = $q->fetch( 'hello', {
        where => 'world'
    } );
Return value is:
    Hello world!
The delimiters are deliberately taken from Template Toolkit.
