in reply to nested unbless of Data::Dumper output

Not entirely sure I understand what you need, but if the idea is to avoid cross references being created, you might want to try $Data::Dumper::Deepcopy = 1;

For the following sample structure, the difference in output would be

my $y = { foo => "bar" }; my $X = { a => $y, b => $y, c => $y }; $Data::Dumper::Deepcopy = 1; print Dumper($X);
$VAR1 = { 'c' => { 'foo' => 'bar' }, 'a' => { 'foo' => 'bar' }, 'b' => { 'foo' => 'bar' } };

while the default output (Deepcopy=0) would look like

$VAR1 = { 'c' => { 'foo' => 'bar' }, 'a' => $VAR1->{'c'}, 'b' => $VAR1->{'c'} };
