Data::Printer is a tool designed to display Perl variables and objects on
screen, properly formatted for inspection by a human being.
Many people use Data::Dumper for this task, although it was designed
primarily to stringify data structures such that they can be eval'ed
back in. It thus lacks all the visual clues, extra information and
filtering possibilities that Data::Printer has to offer:
* Sane defaults
* Highly customizable
* 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
