Actually, I've discovered my solution above is *wrong*...
The problem is it's entirely reasonable to call a template without calling param()
my $tmpl = HTML::Template->new( filename => 'template.html' );
is called a lot of times internally, behaving differently based on parameter types passed, so it's not trivial to override it.
In the end, I settled on overriding output()
, and calling param()
from there, setting the variables I needed. I don't think this changes the main point of my post, but I suppose I should use an example that actually works :)
