Devel::Trepan -- A new Perl debugger
A modular, testable, gdb-like debugger in the family of the Ruby
trepanning debuggers.
It has extensive online-help, supports syntax highlighting via
Syntax::Highlight::Perl::Improved, command completion and history via
GNU ReadLine via Term::ReadLine::Perl or Term::ReadLine::Gnu, and
interactive shell support via Psh or Devel::REPL.
To install this module, run the following commands:
perl Build.PL
./Build test
./Build install
From a shell:
$ [trepan-opts] perl-program [perl-program-opts]
Or for those who prefer the traditional Perlish way:
$ perl -d:Trepan perl-program [perl-program-opts]
Calling the debugger from inside your Perl program using Joshua ben
Jore's Enbugger:
# This needs to be done once and could even be in some sort of
# conditional code
require Enbugger; Enbugger->load_debugger( 'trepan' );
# work, work, work...
# Oops! there was an error! Enable the debugger now!
Enbugger->stop; # or Enbugger->stop if ...
