NAME
PPI::Dumper - Dumping of PDOM trees SYNOPSIS
# Load a document my $Module = PPI::Document->new( 'MyModule.pm' ); # Create the dumper my $Dumper = PPI::Dumper->new( $Module ); # Dump the document $Dumper->print; DESCRIPTION
The PDOM trees in PPI are quite complex, and getting a dump of their structure for development and debugging purposes is important. This module provides that functionality. The process is relatively simple. Create a dumper object with a particular set of options, and then call one of the dump methods to generate the dump content itself. METHODS
new $Element, param => value, ... The "new" constructor creates a dumper, and takes as argument a single PPI::Element object of any type to serve as the root of the tree to be dumped, and a number of key->value parameters to control the output format of the Dumper. Details of the parameters are listed below. Returns a new "PPI::Dumper" object, or "undef" if the constructor is not passed a correct PPI::Element root object. memaddr Should the dumper print the memory addresses of each PDOM element. True/false value, off by default. indent Should the structures being dumped be indented. This value is numeric, with the number representing the number of spaces to use when indenting the dumper output. Set to '2' by default. class Should the dumper print the full class for each element. True/false value, on by default. content Should the dumper show the content of each element. True/false value, on by default. whitespace Should the dumper show whitespace tokens. By not showing the copious numbers of whitespace tokens the structure of the code can often be made much clearer. True/false value, on by default. comments Should the dumper show comment tokens. In situations where you have a lot of comments, the code can often be made clearer by ignoring comment tokens. True/value value, on by default. locations Should the dumper show the location of each token. The values shown are [ line, rowchar, column ]. See "location" in PPI::Element for a description of what these values really are. True/false value, off by default. print The "print" method generates the dump and prints it to STDOUT. Returns as for the internal print function. string The "string" method generates the dump and provides it as a single string. Returns a string or undef if there is an error while generating the dump. list The "list" method generates the dump and provides it as a raw list, without trailing newlines. Returns a list or the null list if there is an error while generation the dump. SUPPORT

NAME
Template::Plugin::Dumper - Plugin interface to Data::Dumper SYNOPSIS
[% USE Dumper %] [% Dumper.dump(variable) %] [% Dumper.dump_html(variable) %] DESCRIPTION
This is a very simple Template Toolkit Plugin Interface to the Data::Dumper module. A "Dumper" object will be instantiated via the following directive: [% USE Dumper %] As a standard plugin, you can also specify its name in lower case: [% USE dumper %] The "Data::Dumper" "Pad", "Indent" and "Varname" options are supported as constructor arguments to affect the output generated. See Data::Dumper for further details. [% USE dumper(Indent=0, Pad="<br>") %] These options can also be specified in lower case. [% USE dumper(indent=0, pad="<br>") %] METHODS
There are two methods supported by the "Dumper" object. Each will output into the template the contents of the variables passed to the object method. dump() Generates a raw text dump of the data structure(s) passed [% USE Dumper %] [% Dumper.dump(myvar) %] [% Dumper.dump(myvar, yourvar) %] dump_html() Generates a dump of the data structures, as per dump(), but with the characters <, > and & converted to their equivalent HTML entities and newlines converted to <br>. [% USE Dumper %] [% Dumper.dump_html(myvar) %] AUTHOR
