Data::Dumper - stringified perl data structures, suitable for both printing and eval.   Written by Gurusamy Sarathy.

tilly pointed me to this Fine Module a while back.   It's served me faithfully since then, as an excellent debugging tool when my perl isn't perling.   Data::Dumper is included in standard Perl distributions, so there are no excuses for *not* using it {grin}

geektron reviewed Data::Dumper right here.

Other modules I frequent:

Update: For fresh perlers not familiar with installation and use of modules*, perusing the old sub-thread starting at "My Favorite Module: CPAN" might be beneficial.   But remember to upgrade manually *before* actually using it to install other modules.   Nevermind that I'm a Luddite, preferring to install all my modules manually.   Heh.

Update 2: davorg provides excellent instructions for getting your feet wet with Perl modules at "Re: difficulty using".
