Fixed up svn-injected copy. This should work, but hasn't been tested yet on my machine. Will test in chroot.

-Description: Partial dumping of data structures, optimized for argument
- Devel::PartialDump is a data dumper optimized for logging of arbitrary
- parameters.
+Description: Perl module to dump subroutine parameters concisely
+ Devel::PartialDump is similar in nature to Data::Dumper, however, it is
+ optimized for the common case of bug reporting with complex data structures.
+ Outputting a string containing a complex data structure can yield rather
+ useless results, since the structures are stringified.
- It attempts to truncate overly verbose data, in a way that is hopefully more
- useful for diagnostics warnings than
- .
- warn Dumper(@stuff);
- .
- Unlike other data dumping modules there are no attempts at correctness or
- cross referencing, this is only meant to provide a slightly deeper look into
- the data in question.
- .
- There is a default recursion limit, and a default truncation of long lists,
- and the dump is formatted on one line (new lines in strings are escaped), to
- aid in readability.
- .
- This description was automagically extracted from the module by dh-make-perl.
+ This module overrides Carp's routines to provide a concise dump of a
+ variable's contents instead of a simple stringification.
