( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
Also along these lines, I like to use lines that start with if 0 and if 1 as additional debugging tools. I particularly use this approach with a little subroutine that invokes Dumper (I could probably do this directly, but anyway). Again, when I want the program to dump the object, it's easy to flip the '0' to '1', and when I'm done with the need to see such output, I can easily find all patterns of ^if 1 and flip the '1' back to '0'.

For example, my "main" script might contain the following:

use strict; require 'gen_subs.pl'; my $foo = { 'abc', 123, 'def', 456 }; gs::do_dumper( 'foo423:', $foo ) # 423 a silly, easy-to-find label if 0;

and a helper file/libary named 'gen_subs.pl' might contain:

package gs; use strict; use Data::Dumper; sub do_dumper { my ( $label, $variable ) = @_; my $msg = Dumper( $variable ); warn "$label:\n$msg\n"; }
