Data::Dumper - stringified perl data structures, suitable for both printing and eval.   Written by Gurusamy Sarathy.

tilly pointed me to this Fine Module a while back.   It's served me faithfully since then, as an excellent debugging tool when my perl isn't perling.   Data::Dumper is included in standard Perl distributions, so there are no excuses for *not* using it {grin}

geektron reviewed Data::Dumper right here.

Other modules I frequent:

Update: For fresh perlers not familiar with installation and use of modules*, perusing the old sub-thread starting at "My Favorite Module: CPAN" might be beneficial.   But remember to upgrade manually *before* actually using it to install other modules.   Nevermind that I'm a Luddite, preferring to install all my modules manually.   Heh.

Update 2: davorg provides excellent instructions for getting your feet wet with Perl modules at "Re: difficulty using".

* Old-timers here at the Monastery will recall when this was me {grin}

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.
