I was idling in #coldfusion on Dalnet this morning and amongst the distorted, haphazard conversations that usually occur in there, an awesome little tidbit of code popped up. Courtesy of Chris Peterson of Alagad fame.

Someone was asking about the formatting of the code that <CFDUMP> spits out and Chris suggested a few scenarios, one of which he said he uses all the time:

<cfdump format=”html” output=”c:\#createUUID()#_dump.html” var=”#whatever#” />

That tasty morsel spits the output to a handy dandy .html file. All these years, I’m ashamed to say I never knew you could do that. Very awesome. Thanks Chris. (yeah yeah yeah, I know, RTFD) :)
