SYNOPSISUse this like any other Padre plugin. To install Padre::Plugin::DataWalker for your user only, you can type the following in the extracted Padre-Plugin-DataWalker-... directory:
Afterwards, you can enable the plugin from within Padre via the menu Plugins->Plugin Manager and there click enable for DataWalker.
DESCRIPTIONThis plugin uses the Wx::Perl::DataWalker module to provide facilities for interactively browsing Perl data structures.
At this time, the plugin offers several menu entries in Padre's Plugins menu:
- Browse YAML dump file
If you dump (almost) any data structure from a running program into
a YAML file, you can use this to open the dump and browse
it within Padre. Dump a data structure like this:
use YAML::XS; YAML::XS::Dump(...YourDataStructure...);
This menu entry will show a file-open dialog and let you select the YAML file to load.
Let me know if you need any other input format (like Storable's nstore).
- Browse current document object
Opens the data structure browser on the current document object.
Like all following menu entries, this is mostly useful for the Padre developers.
- Browse Padre IDE object
- Opens the Padre main IDE object in the data structure browser. Useful for debugging Padre.
- Browse Padre main symbol table
- Opens the %main:: symbol table of Padre in the data structure browser. Certainly only useful for debugging Padre.
