( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I am using Data Dumper to send a perl hash ref from one server to another. Works great but for one weird thing. When I setup some hash refs i see something like this:
$VAR1 = { 'test1' => [ { 'temp' => '123' } ], 'test2' => [ $VAR1->{'test1'}[0] ] };
Where you see VAR1 I would like to find a way for this to just show the correct data instead of the reference. The code might help you understand more seeing the output.
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use Data::Dumper; my ($hash_ref, $var1); print "This is my test of Data Dummper\n"; ## Setup Data $var1->{temp} = "123"; push (@{$hash_ref->{test1}}, $var1); push (@{$hash_ref->{test2}}, $var1); print Dumper($hash_ref); ## print new data my $VAR1; eval Dumper($hash_ref); print Dumper($VAR1); exit;
Full output
$VAR1 = { 'test1' => [ { 'temp' => '123' } ], 'test2' => [ $VAR1->{'test1'}[0] ] }; $VAR1 = { 'test1' => [ { 'temp' => '123' } ], 'test2' => [ undef ] };
As you can see test2 is undef instead of saying temp => '123'. Is there a way to fix this? thanks

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
