in reply to How to remote debug perl script usip EPIC tool of eclipse.?

My experience with debugging perl via EPIC has not been that positive. In general I have found that EPIC works well for simple scripts and demos, but if you attempt to debug something complex such a Catalyst application with it's very deep stack, or a DBIx::Class or Moose application with a complex and deeply inherited class structure, the whole thing grinds to a halt, and you frequently have to kill perl processes, and eclipse.

On the basis of that, my advice would be to learn how to use the perl command line debugger and debug over an SSH console session. If you must use a GUI debugger, then you could use the ptkdb debugger over an X11 session, but I don't recommend it.

    IMHO no X11 session is needed just portforwardings. The builtin editor/gui support works via that interface.

    Though i never tried it myself.
