SYNOPSIS

TODO

    use Data::Trace;

    my $data = {a => [0, {complex => 1}]};
    sub BadCall{ $data->{a}[0] = 1 }

DESCRIPTION

This module provides a convienient way to find out when a data structure has been updated.

It is a debugging/tracing aid for complex systems to identify unintentional alteration to data structures which should be treated as read-only.

Probably can also create a variable as read-only in Moose and see where its been changed, but this module is without Moose support.
