Why not just use GNU DDD rather than all this Tk and patching junk?

    ptkdb allows you to debug CGI scripts running on the server, by adding something to the shebang line. DDD does not. DDD requires you to essentially debug Apache, which results in debugging ALL scripts on the machine.

    I've been using ptkdb to debug CGI scripts for about six months. When I saw your reference to DDD, I took a look. It's a pretty slick program. Unfortunately, if you're needing to debug something running on a web server, forget it.

    That would be why.

    Alternately, if you know how to get DDD to pop up a debugging window to debug a particular script running on a server (not necessarily ALL scripts on the server), please enlighten us.

[Discipulus]: in this case Corion we are speaking about software licensing: evry year or two we must rescan the whole ced to produce an excel report, while at every activation / disactivation we update a black box DB: i said that i a week i can produce the perl to..
[Discipulus]: rend out the xls IF i have access to the DB
[choroba]: LanX I miss working in a bank sometimes...
[Corion]: Discipulus: Ooof. Especially yearly things are things I like to automate instead of trying to remember how I did things last year...
[Corion]: And the second rule that I've learned is, that there is no one-off job, so writing a program for it pays off almost immediately. The third rule is to give all my programs numbers and have them reproduce that number in the name of their output files. :)
[Discipulus]: the true part is that also specification change between years.. but well our job is cheap but dont abuse of us.. ;=)
[LanX]: Choroba: do you miss chaos with ties? apply at the US government.. ;)
