NAME

dump - create an immediate core dump


SYNOPSIS

dump LABEL


DESCRIPTION

This causes an immediate core dump. Primarily this is so that you can use the undump program to turn your core dump into an executable binary after having initialized all your variables at the beginning of the program. When the new binary is executed it will begin by executing a goto LABEL (with all the restrictions that goto suffers). Think of it as a goto with an intervening core dump and reincarnation. If LABEL is omitted, restarts the program from the top. WARNING: Any files opened at the time of the dump will NOT be open any more when the program is reincarnated, with possible resulting confusion on the part of Perl. See also -u option in the perlrun manpage.

Example:

    #!/usr/bin/perl
    require 'getopt.pl';
    require 'stat.pl';
    %days = (
        'Sun' => 1,
        'Mon' => 2,
        'Tue' => 3,
        'Wed' => 4,
        'Thu' => 5,
        'Fri' => 6,
        'Sat' => 7,
    );

    dump QUICKSTART if $ARGV[0] eq '-d';

    QUICKSTART:
    Getopt('f');

This operator is largely obsolete, partly because it's very hard to convert a core file into an executable, and because the real perl-to-C compiler has superseded it.


DISCLAIMER

We are painfully aware that these documents may contain incorrect links and misformatted HTML. Such bugs lie in the automatic translation process that automatically created the hundreds and hundreds of separate documents that you find here. Please do not report link or formatting bugs, because we cannot fix per-document problems. The only bug reports that will help us are those that supply working patches to the installhtml or pod2html programs, or to the Pod::HTML module itself, for which I and the entire Perl community will shower you with thanks and praises.

If rather than formatting bugs, you encounter substantive content errors in these documents, such as mistakes in the explanations or code, please use the perlbug utility included with the Perl distribution.
