[PATCH ext/Data/ Dumper.xs Dumper.t] Option to sort hashes
Message ID:
This is a long overdue patch to Data::Dumper to allow for the
sorting/filtering of hash keys. You can use a default sort or supply
your own callback filter. Both Perl and XSUB implementations patched,
along with doc and tests.

I have discussed with Sarathy about possibly backporting the current
D::D functionality into the CPAN version of the module so that older
Perls can take advantage of sorting, etc.

As this is my first significant patch, please feel free to give me any
newbie pointers that I need. For instance, should I update the Changes
file, or does the Pumpking do that?

Cheers, Brian
