Perl/Tk graphical debugger

This morning I stumbled upon something I did not know existed that I thought I would share with my fellow monks. There is a Perl/Tk adoptation of the debugger. I have not finished fully hammering on it yet but it seems to have all of the functionality of the regular debugger. To invoke the debugger simply type:

perl -d:ptkdb "scriptname"

This comes standard with the Perl/Tk dist but if you chose not to install the Devel stuff you will need to get this from CPAN:

Devel::ptkdb 1.1074 AEPAGE

happy hacking!

    I use it quite often, and really impressed by its functionality! It really, really simplified my debugging many times!

    One small addition - ptkdb does not comes with standard Perl/Tk (may be you got some extended distribution? :) like ActiveState's one? )

    Good luck!

    What does the "s" stand for in "perls"? (Whence perls)
