Wx::Perl::DataWalker(3) Perl extension for blah blah blah

use Wx::Perl::DataWalker;

my $data_to_browse = {
# complex data structure.
# Good test: \%::

package MyWalkerDialog;

"Wx::Perl::DataWalker" implements a "Wx::Frame" subclass that shows a relatively simple Perl data structure browser. After opening such a frame and supplying it with a reference to an essentially arbitrary data structure, you can visually browse it by double-clicking references.

So far, there is no tree view but only a display of the current level of the data structure. You can traverse back up the structure with a back button.

Optionally, "Wx::Perl::DataWalker" displays the (approximate!) size of the data structure using "Devel::Size".
