A themers best friend in debugging by dumping objects, arrays and strings. This dumper is aware of the devel module.

Without parameters the dump command uses php var_dump(), if the devel module is enabled dpr() is used.

However you can specify the prefered dumping method as parameter.

dump(variable, method)

method : dpr,dpm,kpr,print_r,var_dump.

Please note that if you specify a devel module dump method,it is asumed that you have enabled the devel module. This is not checked!
