Why use Data::Dumper? Do you know about the "x" command? Of course, for me, it isn't just the 1 character versus a few dozen; it is that the default format that Data::Dumper produces is just horribly awful and the format the "x" command uses is quite nice.

I was about to hack into the debugger the ability to control how deep complex structures are dumped. Unfortunately, "hashDepth" already existed and has nothing to do with "depth", but instead controls the length of dump produced. Not everyone "gets" English. (: Luckily I see that someone solved this problem with "dumpDepth".</ramble>
