During research into one of Drupal's many mysteries, I saw an instruction to use dpm(). It was written exactly so, but the contributor had not explained what it is and I cannot find any reference to it. Does anyone know what it does and how one uses it?

In short, dpm() is a function in the Devel module, which is short for "drupal print message" that outputs variables for development debugging.
The detailed description is available at http://api.drupal.org/api/devel/devel.module/function/dpm
Hopefully that's what you were looking for - please, let us know if it isn't so.

Oh, right. I tried that Devel tool once, but did not get on with it at all.
Thanks for replying.
