Notes Edit

Added in patch 3.2
This utilizes the new Blizzard_DebugTools interface.
Output is color coded for easier reading
Tables display up to 30 values, the rest are skipped and a message is shown.
Prior to patch 3.2a, /dump compiled and executed its argument as secure code, thereby permitting arbitrary code to be run in secure mode. This led to widespread use of "dump macro" exploits to circumvent the Blizzard addon secure code restrictions. The command was fixed via urgent client patch 3.2a and is no longer exploitable in this way.
