I would love while I am on my favorite perl site for there to be an online perl application that will do a simple debug of my amazing scripts in progress.

    I would sincerely hope that you are not using the HTML input window to write ANY scripts in. Instead, you should be using an editor of greater repute, finally testing the script using any of numerous debugging techniques including perl -d and pasting to the HTML window between <code> tags.

    If had a built-in perl interpreter, there would be no reason to actually download it yourself except to do anything other than produce text output. I see this as horrendously wasteful and not particularly useful idea, so I frown upon it. Sorry.

    AgentM Systems nor Nasca Enterprises nor Bone::Easy nor Macperl is responsible for the comments made by AgentM. Remember, you can build any logical system with NOR.

    Agh, no. I don't even want to imagine all the horrible security issues something like this would open for the PerlMonks server. Not to mention the terrible impracticality of the approach. Just open a terminal window and use "perl -d". I have never used Perl on Windows, but I imagine there must be a comparably simple and flexible method.

    For simple or complex debugging, you just can't beat the amazing online application known as your brain.

    If you really want a fancy looking debugger, to satisfy to GUI addiction, I suggest ptkdb.
