Bug#369543: ITP: libdata-dump-perl -- Pretty printing of data structures

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: "Krzysztof Krzyzaniak (eloy)" <eloy@debian.org>

* Package name    : libdata-dump-perl
  Version         : 1.06
  Upstream Author : Gisle Aas <gisle@aas.no>
* URL             : http://mirrors.kernel.org/cpan/modules/by-module/Data/Data-Dump-1.06.tar.gz
* License         : Perl: GPL/Artistic
  Programming Lang: Perl
  Description     : Pretty printing of data structures

 Data::Dump provides a single function called dump() that takes a list
 of values as its argument and produces a string as its result.  The string
 contains Perl code that, when evaled, produces a deep copy of the
 original arguments.  The string is formatted for easy reading.
 If dump() is called in a void context, then the dump is printed on
 STDERR instead of being returned.
 If you don't like importing a function that overrides Perl's
 not-so-useful builtin, then you can also import the same function as
 pp(), mnemonic for "pretty-print".

Note: I know that Data::Dumper exists but Data::Dump is needed to upload new 
libdbix-class-schema-loader-perl package
