in reply to Data::Dumper

Big 'me too' along with tilly for using Data::Dumper for configuration files.

In addition I must say that my debugging life would be much more painful in a world without Data::Dumper. Curious about what's in that hairy list of hashes of lists of hashes? Just Dump It!

All hail Data::Dumper!

    However, your curiosity for the contents of code refs will never be satisfied, nor will you serialize them to disk, or ever de-serialize them and resurrect them, for this is not possible in Perl5. And probably not Perl 6.

    But it is a serious shortcoming that doesn't exist in many other scripting languages.
