in thread Does this ctor make sense?

Yes, and it’s a core module, so if you have Perl, you already have Data::Dumper:

#! perl use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; my %families = ( Flintstone => { husband => 'Fred', wife => 'Wilma', daughter => 'Pebbles', }, Rubble => { husband => 'Barney', wife => 'Betty', son => 'Bamm-Bamm', }, ); print Dumper(\%families), "\n";

To get similar output with print alone, you would need to write your own loops.

I didn't know Data::Dumper

Seriously, get to know it as soon as possible, it’ll save you a lot of time. Or you might prefer one of the alternatives on CPAN, such as Data::Dump.

Hope that helps,
