in thread How to debug unknown dynamic code?

I'm somewhat offended by your characterization of people who use the Perl debugger for debugging. One could just as easily look at it from the opposite viewpoint:

What's all this about debugging with print statements? Why do people do that? Have they not learned the more effective ways of using a real debugger? I'm truly puzzled.

As I see it, the only advantage to print statements is that they're simple to use. An actual debugger is better in all other aspects.
