  • Yay! Told you it should be possible. :-)
    • It still won't work for everyone, though. PadWalker is fragile and relies on undocumented features in Perl. As a result, it tends to break. I asked P5P if a patch to Data::Dumper was worth considering and the consensus is "no" for these reasons. Thus, I'll either be maintaining the source filtered version and this version side by side or I will figure out how to shoehorn this into Data::Dumper::Simple as an "optional" interface.

      • PadWalker is fragile and relies on undocumented features in Perl. That's true, but I do try to keep it working with new versions. I'm pretty confident that the latest version is the most reliable yet --especially now I've fixed the silly build problem that plagued the last two versions, thanks to Ovid telling me about it. (Really PadWalker should be bundled with the core, then it would be allowed to rely on the internals of a particular perl. I'm not even sure I'm joking...)
