( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I fully agree. The debugger (and especially the x command to unfold data structure) is of tremendous help for all such cases and has helped me out many times. But, for some reason, many people seem to be afraid to use it, although it is in fact a very simple tool to use. Many questions on many developping forums would never be asked if the OP had "dared" to use the debugger to figure out what is going on. But there is nothing "daring" there, and it is increedibly helpful.

Having said that, the Data::Dumper is also a very useful way of understanding complicated data structure. But for the purpose of debugging, I think the debugger is the right tool.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
