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.

[moritz]: I must say, when I was very active on perlmonks, I got really used to the markup and all the workflows
[moritz]: and then I didn't post for a while, and then tried to answer a question. It nearly drove me nuts
[moritz]: when you try to quote part of a question, you have to know/guess/reverse -engineer what kind of markup they used
[holli]: see? https://imgur.com/ a/XpF4b
[moritz]: and stuff it into a <blockquote>...</ blockquote>, which is, like, not at all bulky
[moritz]: specially if you're used to markdown
[holli]: there probably is some nodelet hack that lets you use markdown :)
[LanX]: a) well ... you can use the xml-version to get the original code w/o need of reverse engineering
[moritz]: yes, and that's the next problem: there are piles of workarounds, but not solution, no visible progress
[LanX]: b) you cahnge my wikisyntax to support markdown and stay PM compatible
