O Wise Ones!
I am a bit at a loss. I'm using a linux test system together with some co-workers. The perl debugger is only used by me and I'm using it only now and then. So nobody recognized when the debugger ceased to work.
Any perl -d call will result in:
Can't modify constant item in scalar assignment at xxxx.pl line 0, nea
BEGIN not safe after errors--compilation aborted.
Even things like
perl -d -e 'print "X"'
throw this error message. Larger perl scripts, too. The error is always in line 0.
Without -d everything workes fine.
BTW: perl -v is printing:
This is perl, v5.8.8 built for x86_64-linux-thread-multi
Thanks for any hint!
