Is dumping that huge array making your browser choke?

Sometimes you need to dump the contents of one of Drupal's many huge arrays and the flood of output produced by dpr() or var_dump() actually causes your browser to freeze. Now what?

Try dumping to a file instead:

$logdata = print_r($form, true);
$fp = fopen("mydump.txt", "w");
fwrite($fp, $logdata);
fclose($fp);
