In addition to mentioning the command line debugger, you could mention the very nice support for perldb in Emacs. I blogged about this recently when I made PerlySense debugger-aware (the PerlySense docs contain a summary of the most common debugger operations).

A while back I blogged about how to limit the output when dumping huge data structures with Data::Dumper and the debugger x command. Feel free to incorporate any of that in this post. In particular the syntax of the .perldb config was nontrivial to figure out, so that may be useful to someone.

That concludes the shameless plugs for today :)

    [james28909]: no matter how i prepare the paths. oh well. looks like ill just have to start wsl perl from scratch
    [Corion]: james28909: You can get a list of all modules on your Windows Perl via the autobundle command in the cpan shell. But that likely lists many more modules than you actually want. I recommend a clear separation and installing modules on ...
    [Corion]: ... both Perls separately. I use cpanfiles or Makefile.PL for that - listing all modules for an application there allows me to install them via cpanm . or cpan . automatically without any further interaction
