Thanks, pfaut for a good tutorial.

Your "Example code" has errors that need to be fixed.

Undefined subroutine &main::DumpScalar called at <code-file> line 38.
Replacing all 11 occurrances of "DumpScalar" by "DumpString" corrects the problem.

[thezip]: It fails in the "formatted 2-digit numeric" tests
[thezip]: Okay Corion, that's what I wanted to hear. Thanks!
[Corion]: Oh, a test failure... Just force-install it then? --force and potentially --notest to skip the tests alltogether ?
[ambrus]: thezip: is Activestate Perl usable for your scenario instead?
[MidLifeXis]: Yeah, --notest is good, not sure I would do --force.
[thezip]: It fails 2/10 tests in that group. What are the ramifications if I force it? What should I look for for?
[thezip]: I've migrated from ActiveState to Strawberry. No going back...
[thezip]: I'll try the --notest arg first when I get back from meetings (after lunch).
[thezip]: Thanks guys for your comments! :-)
[1nickt]: Quick survey: has anyone used or even heard of autobox?
