Documentation about debugger should be clearer #16202
Created by @KES777
I have subroutine:
614: sub create_constraint
But for this sub in %DB::sub I have next entry:
The subroutine consist of declaration and definition.
But [documentation](https://perldoc.perl.org/perldebguts.html#Debugger-Internals) did not say what hash entry consist of:
Please fix debugger internals or documentation.

I don't think there's anything that needs to be fixed.
In pod/perldebguts.pod, under the "Debugger Internals" section you mentioned, we have this paragraph:
The output you cite conforms to the 'filename:startline-endline' format described in that paragraph. The documentation makes no claim to providing the subroutine definition. Doing so would probably entail a complete overhaul of the debugger -- and my hunch is that there is no one who wants to take on that task at this time.
Thank you very much.
