bodean has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I have been a long time user of ActiveState and Komodo IDE, I'm wanting to switch over to Strawberry and Padre. I hope this question will be appropriate here.

When I debug a script within Komodo; I am first presented with a Debugging Options dialog box that allows me to specify (among other things) the command line and the start-up directory. I am trying to figure out if there is something similar when using Padre.

The only thing I've come up with on my own is to add a couple of lines of code at the top of the script. And then hopefully remember to remove those lines when I'm finished debugging.

# Change Directory chdir('C:\Jobs\206760'); # Set @ARGV @ARGV = ( '-Debug', '-ParamsFile=CreateOrders.parm', '-NoWarnings', );

    Padre debugging is still unfinished.

    I think you may set your command line options in the preferences, but I'm unsure about this.

    You should contact the Padre support channel to get a trac account and open a ticket requesting the debug startup/configuration dialog.
