Technically, var_dump is output.

You used Turbo Pascal too?  What a small industry it was back then.

Actually, I liked it's debugger ... the color highlighted code-stepping
was cool.

Was fun to see the variables change before your eyes while stepping
through code.

Probably nothing.  But when I was an undergrad, the debugger for Turbo
Pascal sucked out loud, so I very quickly became accustomed to debugging
through output, and it's something I still do, in C++, Java, PHP,
whatever.
