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.
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.
