in reply to Data::Dumper

I'm always forgeting the way to get Data::Dumper to print a hash and put the name of the hash in-place of the "$VAR". So this is as good a place as any to stick it where I can find it quickly, and other people can see an example usage.
use strict; use Data::Dumper; my %hash = ( 'some' => 'stuff' ); print Data::Dumper->Dump([\%hash], ["hashname"]), $/;

    Here's an example of how I use Data::Dumper, on one line, during debugging. It produces a pretty clean output of the data structure:

    print Data::Dumper->new([\%hash],[qw(hash)])->Indent(3)->Quotekeys(0)->Dump;
