I'm very impressed. :-) I don't like the notation but I am very impressed indeed. A couple of niggles though. It looks like the results of the "Dog Kennel" tests are inconsistent. Id also like to see the results of

{ my ($x,$y,$z); my $to_dump=capture(capture($x,$y,$z),$x,$y,$z); }

Ill be checking this module out very soon indeed. ++ to you.

    Before you complain about the notation, consider carefully whether it can be improved without losing accuracy :-)

    For example, I don't like the output of "Parent Tree", but it's a necessary evil. The output tends to look better on real-life data than on contrieved examples though.

    The "Dog Kennel" tests aren't inconsistent btw. Consider that [] copies the glob while capture() doesn't. That means the glob inside [] is an anonymous copy of *dogs, not the real thing.

    Here's the output of your snippet:

    [ [$L001, $L002, $L003], $L001: undef, $L002: undef, $L003: undef ]
