Devel::Trepan -- A new Perl debugger

A modular, testable debugger in the style of the Ruby "Trepanning" debuggers.


From a shell:

    bash$ [trepan-opts] perl-program [perl-program-opts]

Or for those who prefer the traditional Perlish way:

    bash$ 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 ... 


To install this Devel::Trepan, run the following commands:

perl Build.PL
make test
[sudo] make install
