Specio::PartialDump - A partially rear-ended copy of Devel::PartialDump without prereqs


version 0.47


  use Specio::PartialDump qw( partial_dump );
  partial_dump( { foo => 42 } );
  partial_dump(qw( a b c d e f g ));
  partial_dump( foo => 42, bar => [ 1, 2, 3 ], );


This is a copy of Devel::PartialDump with all the OO bits and prereqs removed. You may want to use this module in your own code to generate nicely formatted messages when a type constraint fails.

This module optionally exports one sub, "partial_dump". This sub accepts any number of arguments. If given more than one, it will assume that it's either been given a list of key/value pairs (to build a hash) or a list of values (to build an array) and dump them appropriately. Objects and references are stringified in a sane way.


Bugs may be submitted at <>.

I am also usually active on IRC as 'autarch' on "irc://".
