in reply to What are all the false values in Perl ((conditional, boolean, whitespace, unprintable characters)

I agree with swift -- print length($string) if you're not sure... and as for printing "unprintables":
sub literal { require ''; &dumpValue; }
The library is, in fact, what the debugger uses when you tell it x $string.

      Yes, by setting $Data::Dumper::Useqq to 1.
