[%- END %] [% WRAPPER section title="DESCRIPTION" -%]

The Template::Constants modules defines, and optionally exports into the caller's namespace, a number of constants used by the Template package.

Constants may be used by specifying the Template::Constants package explicitly:

    use Template::Constants;
    print Template::Constants::STATUS_DECLINED;

Constants may be imported into the caller's namespace by naming them as options to the 'use Template::Constants' statement:

    use Template::Constants qw( STATUS_DECLINED );
    print STATUS_DECLINED;

Alternatively, one of the following tagset identifiers may be specified to import sets of constants; :status, :error, :all.

    use Template::Constants qw( :status );
    print STATUS_DECLINED;

See [% ttlink('Exporter') -%] for more information on exporting variables.

The following tag sets and associated constants are defined:

  :status
    STATUS_OK                 # no problem, continue
    STATUS_RETURN             # ended current block then continue (ok)
    STATUS_STOP               # controlled stop (ok) 
    STATUS_DONE               # iterator is all done (ok)
    STATUS_DECLINED           # provider declined to service request (ok)
    STATUS_ERROR              # general error condition (not ok)
  :error
    ERROR_RETURN              # return a status code (e.g. 'stop')
    ERROR_FILE                # file error: I/O, parse, recursion
    ERROR_UNDEF               # undefined variable value used
    ERROR_PERL                # error in [% tt_start_tag %] PERL [% tt_end_tag %] block
    ERROR_FILTER              # filter error
    ERROR_PLUGIN              # plugin error
  :chomp                      # for PRE_CHOMP and POST_CHOMP
    CHOMP_NONE                # do not remove whitespace
    CHOMP_ALL                 # remove whitespace
