Colored pretty-print of Perl data structures and objects

DataPrinter is meant to do one thing and one thing only display Perl variables and objects on screen, properly formatted to be inspected by a human.

Here’s what DataPrinter has to offer to Perl developers, out of the box

  • Very sane defaults I hope!
  • Highly customizable in case you disagree with me
  • Colored output by default
  • Human-friendly output, with array index and custom separators
  • Full object dumps including methods, inheritance and internals
  • Exposes extra information such as tainted data and weak references
  • Ability to easily create filters for objects and regular structures
  • Ability to load settings from a .dataprinter file so you don’t have to write anything other than “use DDP;” in your code!
