is there a way to get the .inspect output formatted like the <%= debug whatever %> output in views? i'm using ruby-debug. would be great if the output could be more readable. or am i missing something? regads

So, require 'yaml' variable.to_yaml instead of variable.inspect. Also, if your debugger is automatically calling #inspect: require 'yaml' class Object def inspect to_yaml end end -- Chris Wanstrath http://errtheblog.com

thx, already tried variable.to_yaml. its a bit more readable. but unfortunately the \n will not be displayed as line breaks in console window. but i realised that pp will format the ruby-debug output readable. don't know if its a bug. "pp" is documented as alias for "p expression => evaluate expression and print its value" so pp fits for my needs. 'til now. thanks anyway just seen that the development console isnt dispaying the yaml \n as line breaks. am i missing some settings?
