The Var_Dump class is a wrapper for the var_dump function.
The var_dump function displays structured information about expressions
that includes its type and value. Arrays are explored recursively with values
indented to show structure.
The Var_Dump class captures the output of the var_dump function, by using
output control functions, and then uses external renderer classes for displaying
the result in various graphical ways :
$ svn checkout http://svn.php.net/repository/pear/packages/Var_Dump/trunk Var_Dump
$ hg clone http://hg.aldabase.com/toolbox/var_dump [directory]
You can also have a look at the Aldabase PEAR channel server. There you can find a few packages written some time ago :
