in reply to RFC: Basic debugging checklist

The default settings for Data::Dumper are pretty ugly. In particular, one should turn on Useqq if one is debugging unexpected string results. Indent=1 and Sortkeys=1 are also big improvements.

    That's why I prefer to use YAML when dumping structures for debugging. I find its output more readable (and more compact) than Data::Dumper. Or course, that just a personal preference.
