Sorry, maybe I didn't explained my problem clearly. I need some kind of data structure pretty printer, so I can send some complex (and, several times, deep) perl data structures to logfiles. There is no need to being able to fetch those structures back to the system, they're only needed as a reference to operations blokes, that need to know what was wrong about the system in a given time interval.
I really don't see how DBM::Deep can be useful for this purpose. Maybe you can explain this to me?
Thanks a lot for your interest, anyway.
