Thanks for the link... I didn't know that one!. :)

But are you aware how many Perl-REPL and Perl-Shell projects already exist, where almost nobody teams up? (This post thread is one of many)

Writing propiatory read-eval-loops is almost as popular as propiatory template engines.

>It sounds like what you are doing does not closely overlap,

No, not really. Ovid uses a Kate library for highlighting introspections and single steps by manipulating &DB::DB.

Cheers Rolf

BTW: When purely debugging (breakpoint, stepping) I use the emacs frontend. So inspected code is already highlighted out of the box in my color scheme. So Ovid's use case doesn't apply to me.
