For last three weeks, I am struggling to re-engineer a interatctive webpage code, without right environment, not even an editor.
The environment consist of :
Windows Server 2003 running IIS .
Uses predominently mod_perl, then JSON, JS, AJAX etc.etc.. etc..
I badly need two things :
1) How to debug? What IDE is right for this? (if I change anything in hash that is used in template, it crashes)
2) How to or How easy it is to setup a server in my local box? what debugging environment is ideal?
Just incase you need more info about where I am stuck, what I was doing for last 3 weeks etc, :
Though I am not novice in PERL, all the mod_perl,IIS,JSON are new for me. All these 3 weeks of study, I understood the portion of the architecture, low level design, but could not enhance anything as user asks.
To study it, when I change member variables in $var that goes in process(template.html,$var), and try to see visit the page, IIS displays 'CGI Program misbehaved' as error. The log files have literally no information, like file name, error line nothing.. Only if I print some statements in cgi programs I am able to see something, but no information, line number where it crashes.
