in reply to Analyzing Perl Code

Since your blog mentions tracing several times, CPAN has handy modules, such as Devel::Trace and Devel::DumpTrace.

It might be worth copy and pasting key excerpts from your blog here (in readmore tags) in case your link becomes stale.

    Thanks toolic! These modules seem to be great and much easier to use, though, they produce really detailed traces (one line for every statement). I would like just one line for each subroutine entered, because the scripts I'm working with are really long. Nevertheless, I will try these modules and see how it works out. :)
        Thanks Jan, I noticed that your module uses Hook::LexWrap too. So I was moving in the right direction after all. Today I found this other module Debug::Trace. I have a feeling TraceSubs is probably better with it's indented output representing call depth. Debug::Trace on the other hand doesn't require any changes in the source code. Are there any other differences?
