That’s a key point.   (Up-voted!)   When the perldoc's tell you that a particular call returns an object, then that’s what you should work from:   treat it as an object, ask it questions, and dump the answers.   If you simply dump the object, it’s kinda like looking at an X-ray picture:   “yeah, that’s what the guts of the thing look like (ugh!), but that’s not really what I want to know.”   (You’d have to understand the deep-guts of the thing to understand what you are looking at, and who wants to stick their hands in guts when the thing is alive and can answer questions?)   Instead, call its methods, and dump what they tell you:

print STDERR Data::Dumper->Dump( [ $myobject->foo(), $myobject->bar(), $myobject->bletch() ], [ 'foo says', 'bar says', 'bletch says' ] );
