I don't doubt that this idea can be implemented for Perl. The question is whether the benefits warrant it. Always we must ask, "How much does it cost?" Will the program still run within a reasonable amount of time, and will the output be manageable? Often our problem is not too little information, but too much.
I believe that most of debugging involves tracking down flaws in logic, and that applying a sort of "shotgun" approach to it is not ideal. A few well-chosen "reality checks", print statements to check values of variables, can isolate a problem in most cases.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
