Smart::Comments is a Perl module that implements "intelligent" comments that
can aid in debugging and tracking program execution flow. They can report the
value of a variable, track the progress of a loop, and verify that particular
assertions are true.
Best of all, when you're finished debugging, you don't have to remove them.
Simply commenting out the "use Smart::Comments" line turns them back into
regular comments. Leaving smart comments in your code is smart because if you
needed them once, you'll almost certainly need them again later.
