mmm, this should be a FAQ...
By default, the processed template output is printed to
STDOUT. The process() method then returns 1 to indicate
success. A third parameter may be passed to the process()
method to specify a different output location. This value
may be one of: a plain string indicating a filename which
will be opened (relative to OUTPUT_PATH, if defined) and
the output written to; a file GLOB opened ready for
output; a reference to a scalar (e.g. a text string) to
which output/error is appended; a reference to a
subroutine which is called, passing the output as a
parameter; or any object reference which implements a
'print' method (e.g. IO::Handle, Apache::Request, etc.)
which will be called, passing the generated output as a
If you note, the third paramater can be a ref to a scalar to which the
output is appended.
