REST API login with x-data-dumper

I am trying to create simple script that will login via REST API and fetch some information, but I fail on the very first step.

In other to avoid any external dependencies (JSON/XML) I wanted to use Perl Data Dumper format for data exchange.

Whatever I've tried, I either get 'Error with input or output data' or response formated in JSON.


Would someone be so kind to share working example of script using Perl Data Dumper for data exchange?

Alternatively, I know there are some CPAN modules that may help:
