Data::Dump::Color (proof of concept)
rjbs' blog post mentioning Data::Printer prompted me to try it out just now. Coincidentally, earlier today I was investing terminal's 256-color support, Emacs color themes, mc skins, all those color-related stuffs.
After seeing Data::Printer output, I think I want colors in my dumps, but I don't want some new syntax/format; I just want to see Perl. So I quickly hacked Data::Dump::Color. Data::Dump's output is nicely formatted enough as a basis, all I need is to sprinkle some colors to it. The module is barely functional and to make it more proper I'll need Data::Dump to give access to more info.
Eventually I think I'll use Data::Printer. It's just that glancing from the docs, there's no easy way to generate Perl-code (Data::Dumper- or Data::Dump-style) dumps.
