Test2::Tools::Explain -- Explain tools for Perl's Test2 framework

=head1 VERSION

Version 0.02

    explain

=head1 SYNOPSIS

L<Test2::Suite> dropped the C<explain()> function that had been
part of Test::More.  For those who miss it in Test2, you can use
Test2::Tools::Explain.

    use Test2::Tools::Explain;

    my $errors = fleeble_the_whatzit();
    is( $errors, [], 'Should have no errors from fleebling' ) or diag explain( $errors );

=head1 EXPORTS

All functions in this module are exported by default.

=head1 SUBROUTINES

=head2 explain( @things_to_explain )

Will convert the contents of any references in a human readable format,
and return them as strings.  Usually you want to pass this into C<note>
or C<diag>.

Handy for things like:

    is( $errors, [], 'Should have no errors' ) or diag explain( $errors );

Note that C<explain> does NOT output anything.

=cut

sub explain {
    local ($@, $!);
    require Data::Dumper;

    return map {
        ref $_
        ? do {
            my $dumper = Data::Dumper->new( [$_] );
            $dumper->Indent(1)->Terse(1);
            $dumper->Sortkeys(1) if $dumper->can('Sortkeys');
            $dumper->Dump;
        }
        : $_
    } @_;
}
