in reply to print_r

I don't use PHP, and I'm probably not the only one. Could you please add a brief description of what 'print_r' does?

    It prints out data items and references, it traces complex data structures down to the last item (arrays, hashes), example (PHP, so be warned!):

    <?php $record = array( 'convict' => array( 'name' => 'virtualsue', 'link' => 'www.perlmonks.org/?node_id +=70099'), 'penalty' => array( 'type' => '48h TV w/out breaks', 'warden'=> 'Mike Judge') ); print_r($record); ?>

    The last line produces exactly the following output:
    Array ( [convict] => Array ( [name] => virtualsue [link] => www.perlmonks.org/?node_id=70099 ) [penalty] => Array ( [type] => 48h TV w/out breaks [warden] => Mike Judge ) )

    Well, if you don't use PHP, then this probably wouldn't appeal to you anyway :) However, I linked to the print_r function documentation on php.net in the original post for this reason.
