<?php

// Simple example

$attributes = array ( 'University' => 'University of Texas at Austin',
                       
'Major' => 'Computer Science',

// For a more practical example imagine we have a MVC setup
// with a controller class defined something like...

class someController
{
    function
serveModule($mod){
       
       
$tpl2 =& new SimpleTPL();
       
        if(
class_exists($mod)){
           
$view =& new $mod();
   
           
$tpl2->renderTemplate('header.tpl.php');
           
$view->processRequest();
           
$tpl2->renderTemplate('footer.tpl.php');
   
           
$tpl2->cleanUp();
           
$view->cleanUp();
        }else{
            echo
'Class: ' . $mod . ' DNE';
        }
    }
}

// ... and a view class defined like...

class SomeView extends SimpleTPL
{
    function
processRequest()
    {
        if(!isset(
$_REQUEST['action'])){
           
$this->drawStudentInformation();
        }
       
    }
   
    function
drawStudentInformation()
    {
       
$name = 'Patrick J. Mizer';

       
$attributes = array ( 'University' => 'University of Texas at Austin',
                               
'Major' => 'Computer Science',
                               
'GPA' => '4.0 (it\'s my example, I can embellish)');
       
       
$this->assignValue('name', $name);
       
$this->assignValue('attributes', $attributes);
       
       
$this->renderTemplate('demo.tpl.php');
    }
}

// The client code would be something like...

$cntrlr =& new someController();
$cntrlr->serveModule('someView');

// ... and voila.

// I think this example illustrates how using templates (no matter how simple)
// really cleans up your code via encapsulation. Coupling this paradigm with
// the use of DAO's makes for very managable, portable, extendable PHP code.
