CGI::Ex::Dump(3)      User Contributed Perl Documentation     CGI::Ex::Dump(3)

NAME
       CGI::Ex::Dump - A debug utility

VERSION
       version 2.50

SYNOPSIS
	 use CGI::Ex::Dump; # auto imports dex,	dex_warn, dex_text and others

	 my $hash = {
	   foo => ['a',	'b', 'Foo','a',	'b', 'Foo','a',	'b', 'Foo','a'],
	 };

	 dex $hash; # or dex_warn $hash;

	 dex;

	 dex "hi";

	 dex $hash, "hi", $hash;

	 dex \@INC; # print to STDOUT, or format for web if $ENV{REQUEST_METHOD}

	 dex_warn \@INC;  # same as dex	but to STDOUT

	 print FOO dex_text \@INC; # same as dex but return dump

	 # ALSO	#

	 use CGI::Ex::Dump qw(debug);

	 debug;	# same as dex

DESCRIPTION
       Uses the	base Data::Dumper of the distribution and gives	it nicer
       formatting - and	allows for calling just	about anytime during
       execution.

       Calling &CGI::Ex::set_deparse() will allow for dumped output of
       subroutines if available.

       perl -e 'use CGI::Ex::Dump;  dex	"foo";'

       See also	Data::Dumper.

       Setting any of the Data::Dumper globals will alter the output.

SUBROUTINES
       "dex", "debug"
	   Prints out pretty output to STDOUT.	Formatted for the web if on
	   the web.

       "dex_warn"
	   Prints to STDERR.

       "dex_text"
	   Return the text as a	scalar.

       "ctrace"
	   Caller trace	returned as an arrayref.  Suitable for use like	"debug
	   ctrace".  This does require at least	perl 5.8.0's Carp.

       "on", "off"
	   Turns calls to routines on or off.  Default is to be	on.

LICENSE
       This module may distributed under the same terms	as Perl	itself.
