in thread String contents

you are right, I wanted to print out the string structure. If I know the structure, then I could extract it. Any other suggestions?

    use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; #do some stuff that generates a structure called $struct->stuff print Dumper($struct->stuff);

    or if you want a structure more stringified, use Data::Dump as already mentioned

      still not sure how to use it. Assumer my variable is $var, and my output filehandle is OUTFILE.When I tried the following, it failed. print Dumper($struct->stuff); print OUTFILE "stuff\n";

        Assumer my variable is $var , and my output filehandle is OUTFILE.When I tried the following, it failed.

        If your variable is called $var why are you trying to print $struct...?

        print OUTFILE Dumper( $var );
