in thread "Safe" print?

See that first line in my the code? It says use 5.010;. The // operator was new in perl 5.10. It's not new anymore now.

    And that's right where I am (CENTOS 6 packaged Perl).

    I know and heartily approve the "//" operator (except when I somehow get confused and use backslashes), but don't want to have to write special code each time I print something that I can't prove is defined quickly. However, the Dumper suggestion (and related) is useful, I'm just embarrassed I didn't think of it myself (that's for complex structures! In debugging!).

      don't want to have to write special code each time I print something

      Then write a subroutine and call that every time.
