Changes for version 1.000

  • Features
    • After tersification, any references to now-tersified data structures will be updated to point to the new, terser data structures. This makes this module worth using on anything other than trivial things!
    • tersify_many() takes a list of values, and is used in the perl debugger plugin Data::Tersify::perldb.
  • Tweaks
    • Summary objects include the refaddr of the object they're summarising in hexadecimal, rather than decimal, because that's the format you expect that number to be in.
  • Documentation
    • Added structure to this CHANGES file.
