Hi List,

Patch sent directly to Josh so as to avoid the list noise.  If people are interested, I will post it (and the test cases).

cheers,
Mathew

Hi Mathew,

I subscribed from another address. :->)

That's exactly what I'm looking for. I'm dealing with legacy code
which has highly nested includes in the templates. From what I've been
able to tell, I don't think the original coder relied on implicit
undefness. My main concern is that I want to be warned if there are
subs that I ought to be calling (to fill in template parameters in
things like headers and footers). It's especially easy to overlook
when the tmpl_var's are used for "hidden" information, like URLs and
hidden form fields.

Where can I find your patch?

Thanks again,
Josh "Ua" Ball

 Short answer: no there isn't such a feature.

 However I do have a patch I use to add this ability - with one caveat...
the patch changes the behaviour such that if your code never implemented:

  $ht->param(parm_name => undef);

 but did rely on the undef'ness of param_name, then your code would need the
above line added where appropriate.  I found that I would often write:

  $ht->param(param_name => get_something());

 so param_name would be explicitely set to undef, and so the patch works for
me.

 Greetings.

(I'm sorry if I double posted this. However, the first time I sent it, I was
not subscribed to the mailing list, so I don't think it went through.)

I find the "die_on_bad_params => 1" to be a very useful feature. Setting it
to 0 is kind of like debugging Perl without "use strict;".

However, die_on_bad_params only does half the job. It dies if I try to set
non-existent vars, but it does nothing if I forget to set an existing var.
Is there a way (such as a die_on_missing_params option) that I can turn on
some such warning system? (Perhaps there are some extensions to
HTML::Template that do this?)

Any help is appreciated.
