in reply to In the art of Perl Debugger Mastery, I seek enlightenment

ptkdb cpan module is a well-known perl debugger using perl/Tk GUI.

Despite being single-file, it is is very powerful and has quite many features. I used it a lot earlier, and found it very useful.

Recently I've reworked it and

  • made it use Tcl::Tk instead of perl/Tk, so it got modernized look-n-feel and faster
  • removed a lot of really unused code and few unused features
  • made lot of places faster
I haven't made online my changes, but am really planning to.

all in all, this module definitely deserves a good look into it - while perl documentation describes its debugging capabilities quite well, ptkdb is a good example of usage of these features.

regards,
vkon

    Ooooooooo! There's even an ubuntu package! =D

    $ apt-cache search ptkdb
    libdevel-ptkdb-perl - Perl debugger using a Tk GUI

      ptkdb is cool

      sometimes I was unhappy with it, but mostly - in 99.9% cases - it is pretty good :)
