Unexpected Data::Dumper resultsby tqisjim (Beadle)
|on Apr 27, 2013 at 17:41 UTC||Need Help??|
tqisjim has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Here is some output from Data::Dumper:
Naturally, this looks like executable perl code. But it doesn't work. Upon evaluation:
It's clear why the results are what they are. But I'm surprised that such a ubiquitous utility would have such a fundamental shortcoming. I'm trying to use this forum to publicize some of my recent distros. And this discovery is coupled with bugs due to my blind reliance on Data::Dumper.
I'm struggling to incorporate some elegant workaround, and counting on the probability that someone has effectively dealt with this problem already.
Any thoughts or meditations? -Thanks!
