Thanks for the thoughts! Maybe I should put the locate command in here too (of course root needs to create the locate db and allow other users to access it), you can just do locate filename on many boxes to find a file (like error_log).
The reason I didn't put in to use CGI::Carp qw(fatalsToBrowser); (something that I use all the time) was because I thought I'd focus this tutorial around *nix commands that help you with remote perl debugging/coding, and leave the perl tricks to more experienced monks.
I thought I might be good to separate *nix tricks from perl debugging tricks in general, in an effort to make Perlmonks more non-*nix friendly.
