Perl debugging initialization: did I just reinvent the wheel?by mpersico (Scribe)
|on Dec 01, 2016 at 19:53 UTC||Need Help??|
mpersico has asked for the

First, I create a ~/.perldb file that contains:
Then I create a local .perldb file in the current working directory where I run perl -d:
So, my questions are:
1) Is this technique widely enough known that I would look like an idiot for blogging about it?
2) Is the usage of @DB::typeahead unsafe in that it's a direct tap into the DB module that may be changed and, therefore, should not be promoted?Thank you.
