in reply to IF in a loop using HTML::Template

In your template when you look for the param 'test' you are in the data loop.
tmpl_loops take a arrayref of hashref
ie,

$tmpl->param(data=>[{test=>1, foo=>1, bar=>1}]);
My understanding is that you can't refer to params outside of the loop. Like you are doing with the test param.

    Is there any documentation on this issue somewhere?
      From the POD ...

      Inside a <TMPL_LOOP>, the only variables that are usable are the ones from the <TMPL_LOOP>. The variables in the outer blocks are not visible within a template loop. For the computer-science geeks among you, a <TMPL_LOOP> introduces a new scope much like a perl subroutine call. If you want your variables to be global you can use global_vars option to new() described below.

        Thank you all, now back to the drawing board!
        I meant that because I'm using this logic with CGI::Application, I need to research on the global variable case since it will be in a subroutine as in my first sample code posted earlier.
        I found what I needed based on information from you, by adding this line: "global_vars=1" - It treats parameters sent to the template as global.
        my $t=HTML::Template->new(filename=>'temp.tmpl', global_vars => 1,);
        Thanks again for pointing me to the right direction!
