function fpm

7.x fpm($var, $max_levels = 20)
6.x fpm($var, $max_levels = 20)
4.x fpm($var)
5.x fpm($var, $max_levels = 20)

Uses fp_add_message, but in this case, it also adds in the filename and line number which the message came from!

Most useful for developers, tracking down issues. It's also only visible to administrators with the "view_fpm_debug" permission. So if you need to display a message only to admins, you can use fpm() as a shortcut.

Note: If you attempt to fpm() an array or object with too many levels of nesting, it may run out of memory and your script will die.
