Visualizing in-memory objects?

Object persistence, transparent, is something that I much desire.

However, I have nowhere near enough understanding on how objects behave
in memory.

To learn more I thought it would be cool to write something to visualize
objects and references between the objects. I realize I can use a
debugger to ‘dig in’, but I was thinking of something more graphical.

Do you think this pathway is possible? Any pointers? Or should I stick
to learning debugging?

Sounds promising. I didn’t know that, thanks for the link, Michael!

Casimir, another simpler alternative might be to use pp, i.e.

require ‘pp’

pp some_object

Kind regards
