    How is db_tst.pl different from what I posted?

    No, the script doesn't have Windows/DOS line endings. If it did, it wouldn't matter to Linux, if I call it via 'perl script.pl'. But it clearly runs fine on Linux (at least my Xubuntu and Debian installations). And the debugger issues no warnings.

    What kind of warning could I insert that would help? It's not a runtime problem; it's a problem of the debugger missing a line, and so subsequent line numbers are off by one.

    I note in the perl5db.pl POD text:

    @dbline Local alias to the magical line array, "@{$main::{'_<'.$filename}}" , supplied by the Perl interpreter to the debugger. Contains the source +.

    That's pretty clear that the Perl 5.26.1 interpreter is providing a buggered line array.

    I don't know how to follow up with that, except to upgrade to something newer.

      I can only guess what your real file looked like before you posted it thru monasterie's html filters.

      > What kind of warning could I insert that would help? It's not a runtime problem;

      warn reports the line-numbers saved into the op-tree.

      It's not the Perl interpreter, but the debugger which builds the line array. And this with plain Perl code.

      UPDATE : I was probably wrong here, seems the population appears when the executable is started with the -d option or if $PERLDB is set to x400 . I thought the actual reading is handled inside perl5db.pl but couldn't identify the sub yet.

      > I don't know how to follow up with that, except to upgrade to something newer.

      As long nobody else is reproducing this problem, my best guess is that your file is corrupted.
