allowing Data::Dumper within safe.pm

gideondsouza has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

So I use Safe.pm, to allow and deny certain operations. When I use Data::Dumper I get:
Unsafe code detected: 'eval "string"' trapped by operation mask at /usr/.../Carp.pm line 160 +. Compilation failed in require at /usr/../Data/Dumper.pm line 22. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/../Data/Dumper.pm line 22.
This is what my Safe permit/denies look like:
$compartment->deny(qw(:base_io :ownprocess :subprocess :filesys_read : +sys_db :filesys_open :filesys_write :dangerous)); $compartment->permit(qw(print say pack unpack require caller));

Question: What should I allow to make Data::Dumper work? I tried permit("eval") but it says no operator recognized

Note, this is NOT production code, this is a learning project I'm working on.

      Ah! I've tried entereval and leaveeval and it still gives me the exact same message! :(

      How should I use share_from, I don't quite understand what it does!

        share() allows you to specify which global variables in your program that you want your compartment to be able to see. However, you can only specify simple names, like '$x', i.e. names from the current namespace.

        share_from() allows you to specify more complex variable names, i.e. variables from a different namespace, e.g. package X::Y::Z.

        However, I've not succeeded in getting either to work. If you do, please post an example.
