in reply to RFC: debugger_trainer

I really like the idea if a script that guides you through using the perl debugger. Like some of the other monks I tend to fall back on print statements and Data::Dumper; which I know is daft but I am really lacking in skills in the debugger. I like the idea of a script that basically tells me to try various things and explains why. So when you try and run it direct it tells me to run it with -d. Then there are perhaps comments/prints that tell me what to do. That describe perhaps a problem and a command that helps me identify the problem etc. Happy to act as a guinea pig on this. :-)

[ELISHEVA]: yes - I set "f_encoding"
[erix]: still doesn't work?
[afoken]: sorry, forget File::BOM. I did not see DBD.
[ELISHEVA]: perldoc - of course
[erix]: hm, where's tux when you need him?
[ELISHEVA]: what's curiouser is that the underlying Text::CSV_XS appears to be BOM-friendly
[afoken]: DBD::CSV has a csv_class attribute. You could subclass Text::CSV_XS to handle BOMs, e.g. through File::BOM.
[ELISHEVA]: Text::CSV_XS already can handle boms - see its detect_bom flag
[ELISHEVA]: but it seems that the DBD::CSV layer on top of it doesn't
[afoken]: Also: All other attributes that start with csv_ and are not described above will be passed to Text::CSV_XS (without the csv_ prefix).
