How does the FILTER usage work when you've got to pass parameters?

I've implemented something similar to this in OpenInteract2 -- you just call:

[% MSG( 'somekey', param1, param2, ... ) %]

...and that call gets replaced by the relevant lookup and replacement. Behind the scenes it's using Locale::Maketext, but that detail is irrelevant to the template creator.

    It's built to handle things like [% FILTER repeat(3) %]blah [% END %] -- Two starting points (with some good examples) are the FILTER directive and the Template::Filters docs.

      Just a little question... I saw that the | can be used for an alias to FILTER, but I didn't understood if this only applies to non-block directive... And if it's valid to remove the whitespaces... would the following be valid?
      • [%|i18n%]Text to be translated[%END%]
      • [%|i18n(10)%]You gained %d experience points[%END%]

      P.S.: Is there an alias for [%END%]?

        <EDIT>
        Yes, that's valid
        </EDIT>

        Changing that to:
        [% "Text to be translated" | i18n %]
        and
        [% "You gained %d experience points" | i18n(10) %]

        respectively, would eliminate the need for the [%END%] tag. I also find this more readable.
