Devel::Chitin

Programmatic interface to the Perl debugging API

This class exposes the Perl debugging facilities as an API useful for implementing debuggers, tracers, profilers, etc so they can all benefit from common code.

Devel::Chitin is not a usable debugger per se. It has no mechanism for interacting with a user such as reading command input or printing retults. Instead, clients of this API may call methods to inspect the debugged program state. The debugger core calls methods on clients when certain events occur, such as when the program is stopped by breakpoint or when the program exits. Multiple clients can attach themselves to Devel::Chitin simultaneously within the same debugged program.
