bichonfrise74 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Is there a way to run the Perl debugger using option s (to enter to all the subroutines) and save the output in a standard file?

    I think you are looking for the trace option in the perl debugger. Just start the debugger, type t and enter and then run your program. Every line of code that is executed will be printed to screen. It should no be to hard to send a copy of that output to a file.

    However, can you tell us more about what you are looking to achieve, because if you are trying to profile your code, or create a call graph, there will be much better tools out there for the purpose.

    Yup, that's it. I knew it was possible.

    I just wanted to see the different internal / external modules that the program will go.
