The README.txt Drupal example source code


A module containing helper functions for Drupal developers and
inquisitive admins. This module can print a log of
all database queries for each page request at the bottom of each page. The
summary includes how many times each query was executed on a page, and how long
each query took.
 It also offers
 - a block for running custom PHP on a page
 - a block for quickly accessing devel pages
 - a block for masquerading as other users (useful for testing)
 - reports memory usage at bottom of page
 - more
 This module is safe to use on a production site. Just be sure to only grant
 'access development information' permission to developers.

Also a dpr() function is provided, which pretty prints arrays and strings.
Useful during development. Many other nice functions like dpm(), dvm().

AJAX developers in particular ought to install FirePHP Core from
http://www.firephp.org/ and put it in the devel directory. 
This happens automatically when you enable via drush. You may also
use a drush command to download the library. If downloading by hand, 
your path to fb.php should look like devel/FirePHPCore/lib/FirePHPCore/fb.php. 
You can use svn checkout http://firephp.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/trunk/Libraries/FirePHPCore.
Then you can log php variables to the Firebug console. Is quite useful.

Included in this package is also: 
- devel_node_access module which prints out the node_access records for a given 
  node. Also offers hook_node_access_explain for all node access modules to 
  implement. Handy.
- devel_generate.module which bulk creates nodes, users, comment, terms for 
- performance module.

- Modules that use AHAH may have incompatibility with the query log and other
  footer info. Consider setting $GLOBALS['devel_shutdown'] = FALSE if you run into
  any issues.
