Forking the Perl debugger - which version?by LanX (Chancellor)
|on Jun 11, 2013 at 17:11 UTC||Need Help??|
LanX has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I wanna fork the perldebugger for my IPL project, but I'm not sure which current version / distribution to build on.
The current version takes the 5.10 debugger which should be to old.
I've been told that there were some efforts taken to make the code more strict which broke compatibility.
What would be a good compromise between new and stable?
( addicted to the Perl Programming Language)
PS: No I don't think that directly patching perldb.pl is a good idea, I don't wanna bother about compatibility issues of a small minority and leave it to the user which version to use... (at least in a transition phase)
