        hackish implementation of the php 'var_dump()' in javascript:

function var_dump(obj) {
   if(typeof obj == "object") {
      return "Type: "+typeof(obj)+((obj.constructor) ? "\nConstructor: "+obj.constructor : "")+"\nValue: " + obj;
   } else {
      return "Type: "+typeof(obj)+"\nValue: "+obj;
   }
}//end function var_dump
