Revision history for Devel-Trepan
0.36 - Sep 15, 2012
- Allow color in Data::Printer output
- Help strings are now in pod format and we run pod2text to give help.
This means terminal width settings can be adjusted (with set max width)
and terminal highlighting is handled. We are also closer to automating
a Devel::Trepan manual
- If Devel::Callsite is installed we can show a more exact location of
where we are.
- Add debugger command 'load command' to force loading or reloading a
debugger command file
- Add debugger command 'load module' to foce loading or reloading a
Perl module
- Continuation of a command now allowed if you end a line with '\'
This should make writing macros for example easier and may help
in eval
- There's enough flexibility with eval that we don't need special
! handling. Remove that.
- Bug in tab completion of help syntax fixed.
- Tidy syntax errors in evaluation
0.35 - Aug 27, 2012
- More CPANTS failures, Had broken tolerance in older Perls and
perl compiled with usesiteconfig
- Add more verbiage to and revise help docs
- Don't trace into Devel::Trepan::Terminated
- Fix another alias reporting bug.
0.34 - Aug 26, 2012
- Add step count.
- Avoid DB::fake for CPAN indexer
- Fix issue 11
- Add set debug {except, skip, macro}.
- Fix Bug in getting macro parameters
- Rerelease for CPANTS failures
0.33 - Aug 24, 2012
- Rerelease for CPANTS failures
- Fix issue 10
0.32 - Aug 24, 2012
- Fix bugs
- Rerelease for CPANTS failures
0.31 - Aug 20, 2012
- Rerelease for CPANTS failures.
0.30 - Aug 19, 2012
- Incompatible change: "d" is now "delete" like gdb, not "down". Add aliases
for "h" and remove "u" for "up". All of this is to follow gdb closer.
- Incompatible change: "set/show evaldisplay" is now "set/show display eval"
- Set $0, __FILE__, and, __LINE__ to look like it would be inside the debugged
- Add -e option to same as Perl
- Location now shows package name like recent perl5db
- More than one line may be shown if the line we are on isn't a full statement
- Add "info line"
- Add gdb "show args"
- Add "Set Display COP" to show COP address in location
- Allow setting a breakpoint on a line even if it isn't recorded as a place
that is stoppable.
- Fix various bugs
0.2.1 - May 25, 2012
- Address some CPANTS failures. Some doc tweaks.
0.2.0 - May 24 2012
- Nexting should be more accurate albeit slower
We can't rely on $DB:single -- sigh
- Remove defined(@array) which is deprecated in Perl 5.16
- Allow alias replacement to be a blank-delimited string
- eval? treats 'local' and 'our' like eval? for 'my', e.g.
local ($a,b) = ($v1,$v2)
displays ($v1,v2) without setting. If you want to set, use 'eval'
0.1.9 - Jan 16, 2012
- Allow Data::Print to be used for printing eval output
- Use sigils in eval? and eval; was previously done only in autoeval
- "info program" may show COP position.
- Miscelleneous bug fixes and documentation corrections and improvements.
0.1.8 - Jan 3, 2012
- Perl 5.8.8 tolerance - this time, for sure!
- Eval::WithLexicals is optional. Darn you, RedHat!
0.1.7 - Jan 2, 2012
- Perl 5.8.8 tolerance.
- Use Eval::WithLexicals to evaluate stack frames other than the
topmost frame.
0.1.6 - Jan 2, 2012
- Rereleased because of weird interaction in rlib.
0.1.5 - Jan 1, 2012
- Works on Perl 5.8 (Only 5.8.9 tested)
- Add rudimentary signal handling
- Warn if we try to set a breakpoint on a "use" statement line.
- Auto evaluation will determine the return type based on the first (sigil)
character of an expression, e.g. the expression: %ENV treated as a hash, and
the expression @ARGV is treated as an array by default. Use explicit overrides
to change this. For example: "eval$ @ARGV + 1" or "$ @ARGV+1"
- add --cmddir option to all addition of user-specified commands. As a
a result...
* 'disassemble' and 'shell' commands are now in a separate package
- In line with the above, reduce the minimum number of dependencies needed
to build.
0.1.4 - Dec 16, 2011
- Works on ActiveState Perl and Perl 10.0
- Fix CPANTS errors when Term::ReadLine::Perl dies in ->new()
- Work on remote debugging
* Add client .source to run a remote client-based profile
* Use common User output routines
0.1.3 - Dec 11, 2011
- Add remote debugging over a TCP socket. See --server and --client
on and debugger "server" command
- Tests work in Strawberry Perl
- Complete completion more. Completion offers choices properly by using
- Add debugger commands:
* info functions
* info variables
* server
* show interactive
- Make easier to build on older Perl (but still >= 5.10.0)
- Start script trepanpl is now
- Add '--no-readline' option on
- Remove "shell" for now. Will reinstate sometime later with Devel::REPL
rather than Psh.
0.1.2 - Nov 17, 2011
- Add nested debugging via the "debug" command
- Make code work better on cygwin and with some older modules
- Some code cleanup
0.1.1 - Nov 11, 2011
- Add watchpoints
- Don't require Term::ReadLine::Gnu or Term::Readline
- Reduce uses Term::ReadLine when it not needed, e.g. trepanpl --command
or --testing options.
- Use "use rlib" instead of "use lib"
- Remove deprecated warning given by newer Perls (Reine Urban and Shlomi Fish)
- Add --no-match-vars to Use English. (Shlomi Fish)
0.1.0 - Oct 27, 2011
Initial release.
Some cool things not in other Perl debuggers
- Syntax higlighting via Syntax::Highlight::Perl::Improved
- Readline debugger command completion
- Extensive help inside the debugger
- Gdb-like command set
- Standalone binary install: trepanpl
(Enbugger support provided as a patch to Enbugger)
- trace mode for POSIX-shell "set -x"-like tracing: trepanpl -x ...
- auto evaluation in hash and array and scalar context:
@ array-expression # for array
% hash-expression # for hash
[$] expression # for scalar
- Evaluation results saved in global array @DB::D
- Ability to go into a Psh shell
- Debugger Command aliases for simple things and
- Debugger Command macros via a perl anonymous sub for
more complicated things.
- Extensible command set
- many unit and integration tests
Still, much remains to be done (out-of-process control, installing
signal handlers, adding watch expressions), so please help out!
