I couldn't leave well enough alone; not satisfied with my previous response. Here is a more complete solution:

use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; my %hash = qw/Blue 1 Cow 3/; sub PrettyDump { local $Data::Dumper::Terse = 1; local $Data::Dumper::Indent = 1; local $Data::Dumper::Quotekeys = 0; my $dump = Dumper(@_); $dump =~ s/[{}]\s+|[',]|=>|^\s+//mg; return $dump; } print PrettyDump(\%hash); __OUTPUT__ Blue 1 COW 3

The substitution regex is pretty lame in this solution. And it's only designed to work with non-complex datastructures. A more robust solution would be a lot more careful to deal with things like commas, quotes, etc. And though it's probably easier to write your own hash-dumper than to implement a solution that strips away unwanted stuff from the output of Data::Dumper, I thought it was fun to tinker with this solution anyway.

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.
