NAME ^

Mail::LMLM::Render - rendering backend for LMLM

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Mail::LMLM::Render::HTML;

    open O, ">out.html";
    my $r = Mail::LMLM::Render::HTML->new(\*O);

    $r->start_document("My Document", "Head Title");

    $r->start_section("Google", { 'title_url' => "http://www.google.com/", });

    $r->para("Google is a very nice search engine.");
    $r->end_section();
    $r->end_document();
    close(O);

DESCRIPTION ^

The Mail::LMLM::Render is a base class for rendering hypertext. It is used by LMLM extensively as a thin layer around the actual format.

To use it open a filehandle, and call the package's new constructor with a refernce to the filehandle. Afterwards call the start_document method (documented below), and when you're done call the end_document method. For each section call start_section and end_section explicitly.
