Display an array in a readable format - PHP

When debugging PHP projects, often I want to know the content in large multi dimensional arrays. We can simply var_dump the object or array, but there is little hardness on reading content.

Here is a simple trick to display content in multi dimensional array in a neat & human readable format.

//$data is our variable
print "<pre>";
print_r($data);
print "</pre>";
