in reply to perl crashes parsing huge script - how to find a line that crashes it?

You can obtain the pdb debugging symbols for the standard ActivePerl builds at http://downloads.activestate.com/ActivePerl/Windows/. To use these, browse this site until you find the appropriate zip file containing the symbols (eg, ActivePerl-5.10.0.1002-MSWin32-x86-283697-symbols.zip), and unpack this in the same top-level directory where Perl was installed (eg, C:\Perl). Debugging tools like Dr. Watson, as well as Visual Studio if you have it, will then use the information in these symbol files to help pinpoint where and why a crash occurred.
