  • Here is a demonstration.

    use Data::Dump::Streamer;
    my $obj = bless {}, "Foo";
            "Foo", sub {my $self = shift; "$self"}

    Now obviously in this case Foo does not have a useful stringify method. But if it did, it would be used.

  • Hearing you in the vicinity of the Data::Dumper namespace just reminded me that I'm long overdue in sending thanks for creating Data::Dumper::Simple. It's one of those modules that just happily motors into place when required, does its job without any fuss, and produces exactly what I want to see.

    So... thanks,


    • Thanks you! It's always good to get feedback about what people do and don't like about my code (especially the "do like" bits). Since it's based on a source filter, I was given a bit of grief over its creation, but I'm pleasantly surprised by people's reactions to it. My favorite is woman back in the States who tells me that she can never hate me because she uses Data::Dumper::Simple so much that it would make her mad every time she programs :)

      • Ovid and the women… ;-)

        • Regrettably, any woman with even the remotest interest in me seems to be doomed to live in a different country. I want to find this "Fate" guy and put the boot in a few times.
