YAML, successor to Data::Denter, nicer output IMHO than Data::Dumper, safer to use too, modified to allow for variables (a-la-XML::Simple in its latest version)

YAML is not particularly accurate, and the author has no intention of improving matters. Personally I wouldnt use it at all, and I certainly wouldnt recommend it to others without serious caveats.

    I have heard those claims, but the data I deal with is usually quite simple, just hashes/arrays/scalars/simple objects, no code refs or the likes. So it looks accurate enough for me.

    Could you be more precise and give us examples of the kind of data that causes problems with the module?

    As a side note I exchanged a couple of emails with ingy when I wanted to patch the module, and he was most helpfull.
