For instance Data::Dump will go into fits (infinte loop) when trying to dump the following
And a bug in dumper can be seen from
$VAR1 = \\'Foo';
Problem is that this is wrong (doesnt look it though does it?)
# this is fine...
# this is an illegal attempt to alter a read only variable.
Im looking forward to releasing my new dumper in the next few days. It wont have either of these problems and represents a new approach to dumper modules... Look for it on CPAN under the name Data::BFDumper in the next few days....
