Data::Peek - A collection of low-level debug functions
Modified and extended wrapper functions to make debugging more pleasurable.
DDumper () is a wrapper around Data::Dumper with always sorted keys. The output is however reflowed and not parsable anymore (in most cases) as the quotation around the keys is removed.
DDump () is a wrapper around perl's core function sv_dump (), which should enable you to use the output instead of the default behavior that only prints to STDERR.
DPeek () is a wrapper around internals Perl_sv_peek
DDump_IO () is a wrapper around perl's core function do_sv_dump (), which acts like sv_dump (), but to a PerlIO stream.
Perl 5.8.0 and up. Some versions of perl on some operating system(s) might not have exported the internals (yet). This module won't build then.
If you run a perl that did not export Perl_sv_peek (), DPeek will not be available. If you happen to encounter that problem, most likely on Windows or AIX,
export NO_SV_PEEK=1 will make the build and test pass (I hope)
$ perl Makefile.PL $ make $ make test $ make install
