Two Whoops for this. I've never found the debugger to
be remotely useful. The pain of using it outweighs the
value. I use the debugger to understand behavior of
code or algos, I use prints or warn logging to find bugs
when I'm too lazy to refactor the code that got out of
About half the time, I just rewrite the section in
multiple pieces and the bug "goes away". Heck, I rarely open
the debugger on _C_ code unless I need to find out what was on
the stack at a core. Perl is ever so much better than
that, I just can't imagine that it is very useful.
Update I wouldn't go so far as to say
that gdb rocks my world but it has sure made working with
big bad C quite a bit easier. Still, I usually don't pick
it up will there is a nasty problem.
