ATM I'm solving this by stopping multi-line after manually typing a double semicolon ";;". I just patched the mechanism for parsing "\" at end of line.
And yes on the long run one needs a better "perl parser".
Thats why I started a spin off project for "empiric" parsing, which even works well detecting nested structures in its actual very Q&D form (mentioned in the slides)
I plan to release it on GitHub/CPAN, as soon as my actual proj€ct end$, maybe it can even help with other REPL projects.

perl5db is deeply integrated in many tools, including my preferred IDE. And thankfully my patches work there out-of-the box!
And I'm regularly working on remote servers where installing new modules is very "political" ... but nobody can fire me for my personal rc-file.
I like Devel::Trepan and I can follow many of your arguments and I certainly didn't mean to attack your efforts.
But ATM there are so many shell/repl/debugger solutions on CPAN and none became core till now.
And I need solutions now.
