( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Wonderful! - I always hated the 2 issues with Data::Dumper - it wants a REFERENCE, and it wont easily tell you the variable NAME.

There was one additional nit - which perhaps you can pick -the need to say "print Dumper (\$blah)" - why keep repeating the "print" or "warn" .. wouldn't is be nice to have an OO interface that remembers what you want to do .. something like:

use Data::Dumper::Simple; my $Dump => new Data::Dumper::Simple( Output=>"warn", # or "print" # or: Output=\&CodeRef vars=($this,%that,@other) }; $Dump->() ; # Can't think of appropriate syntax here.. # Line above would do the equivalent of print Dumper ($$this,%that,@other); # If we no longer want to output %that, do $Dump->Removevars(%that); # or even $Dump->Addvars(@Something_Else);

    Earth first! (We'll rob the other planets later)

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
