Or you can get it straight from SF.net wo/ the registration nuisance.

I haven't tried EPIC in quite awhile, the debugger looks much better than before. Has anyone debugged threaded apps w/ it yet ?

I'm not a big Eclipse fan, but the re-install may be worth the effort if its the only debugger that sensibly supports ithreads.

Update:

OK, I lied...the docs above didn't bother to mention how BPs are added. So, to save you all the bothersome task of entering a bogus registration, here's the skinny:

After you enter Debug mode, right click in the border (in my case, the line number border) next to the line you want a BP on. Then select "Add Remove Breakpoint" from the popup menu.

A BP icon will then be added next to the line.

That being said, my prelim attempts to debug a very simple threaded app leave me with the same sense I had before: Eclipse seems way too non-obvious to me. At a minimum, I think it violates my favorite Perl mantra, "Simple things should be easy, and hard things should be possible."

And while EPIC seems to attempt ithreads support, I can't seem to get it to behave (Note: I'm using the "test" version, which may be the source of my difficulties, but the ChangeLog leads me to believe I'll have many more problems with the "stable" release).

So I guess its back to perl -d for the time being...
