in thread trying to identify the exact data stored from dump - [ ' ];

Hi, Thanks for looking into this. But unfortunately I am executing with reference only the same as I quoted earlier i.e. Data::Dumper->Dump($arrayReference) .

Actually even if one were to try Data::Dumper->Dump(@$arrayReference). They would run into usage error and not an output. But since you asked me that. what was your reason for doubting that? there might be some clue for me in your observation.

Keeping in mind your doubts. I thought would share with you sample usage and let see if you can point out some error in that.

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use Data::Dumper; $Data::Dumper::Useqq = 1; my $abc=['cde','bdef','dummy', " \n"]; print (Data::Dumper->Dump($abc) . "\n"); #this will work fine print (Dumper($abc) . "\n"); #this will work fine print (Data::Dumper->Dump(@$abc) . "\n"); # this will give usage error + as I mentioned earlier. 1;

Note: this is not my real code. just a simple example of how I am using array reference with this module.

Output: $VAR1 = "cde"; $VAR2 = "bdef"; $VAR3 = "dummy"; $VAR4 = " \n"; $VAR1 = [ "cde", "bdef", "dummy", " \n" ]; Usage: PACKAGE->new(ARRAYREF, [ARRAYREF]) at /tmp/ line 8

Kindly look into this and let me know if I am missing anything.

PS: anyway question is

1) for me why one of the elements(1st element) is not being seen.

2) what could it possibly be?

3) and is there any way to identify it?
