in thread Dumping variables but DRY and simple

# named printing is still not DRY, but much better than: # print Data::Dumper->Dump( [$ref], ['*ref'] ); print '$ref = ', pp($ref), "\n";

yeah but thats core...

use Data::Dumper qw/Dumper/; print '$ref = ', Dumper($ref), "\n";

So really a big gain if it's not DRY?

    When used during development (when Data::Dump should be installed only on my machine) I think every saved keystroke is a big gain. Although when I want to distribute the resulting code (eg. using for a deep copy, not just debug printing) then it is not.
