Event icons

When Devel::Trepan enters it reports where you are, same as perl5db. However different is the addition of a two-character event icon:

In perl5db:

$ perl -d test.pl
main::(/tmp/test.pl:1):	$x = 'first line of program';

In trepan.pl:

$ trepan.pl test.pl
-- main::(/tmp/test.pl:1)
^^ two-character icon here
$x = 'first line of program';

Above ‘--’ indicates we are at a line event. Here is a list of all of the icons and what they mean:

icon event name
xx brkpt
-> call
:o debugger-call
-- line
XX post-mortem
<- return
!! signal
x1 tbrkpt
:x terminated
== trace
?! unknown
wa watch
