Here’s a good replacement for your standard print_r and var_dump in PHP, Krumo beautifies and expands the functionality required for PHP debugging:
To put it simply, Krumo is a replacement for print_r() and var_dump(). By definition Krumo is a debugging tool (now for PHP5 only), which displays structured information about any PHP variable.
A lot of developers use print_r() and var_dump() in the means of debugging tools. Although they were intended to present human readable information about a variable, we can all agree that in general they are not. Krumo is an alternative: it does the same job, but it presents the information beautified using CSS and DHTML.
Apart from dumping variable data, the current version of Krumo also supports the following :
- Print Backtrace
- List all included files
- List all functions
- List all declared classes
- List all constants
