Bug#898582: ITP: libdata-hexdump-perl -- hexadecimal dumper

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Antoine Beaupre <anarcat@xxxxxxxxxx>

* Package name    : libdata-hexdump-perl
  Version         : 0.02
  Upstream Author : Fabien Tassin <fta@xxxxxxxxxx>
* URL             : https://metacpan.org/release/Data-HexDump
* License         : Artistic / GPL-1+
  Programming Lang: Perl
  Description     : hexadecimal dumper

 Dump in hexadecimal the content of a scalar. The result is returned in a
 string. Each line of the result consists of the offset in the source in the
 leftmost column of each line, followed by one or more columns of data from
 the source in hexadecimal. The rightmost column of each line shows the
 printable characters (all others are shown as single dots).

This is a new dependency of Smokeping introduced in the 2.7.2
release. I would love for the perl team to just carry this one, as I
will probably have no other use for it.

dh-make-perl seems to do a decent job with it, and i intend to upload
this to unstable or experimental when i figure out how to un-mess the
smokeping package.
