in reply to Getting back $object from eval(Dumper($object))

Turn on $Data::Dumper::Terse and only use eval STRING as eval BLOCK is not what you want e.g
use warnings; use strict; use Data::Dumper; use Test::More qw(no_plan); package Foo; sub new {bless {'a' => 1}, $_[0]}; package main; my $foo = Foo->new(); my $foo_dumped_evaled; $Data::Dumper::Terse = 1; $foo_dumped_evaled = eval(Dumper($foo)); isa_ok($foo_dumped_evaled,'Foo'); #fails $foo_dumped_evaled = eval{Dumper($foo)}; isa_ok($foo_dumped_evaled,'Foo'); #fails print Dumper($foo); __output__ ok 1 - The object isa Foo not ok 2 - The object isa Foo # Failed test ( at line 19) # The object isn't a reference bless( { 'a' => 1 }, 'Foo' ) 1..2 # Looks like you failed 1 test of 2.
