Thats where I started, but if you look into Ovid's code you will see that he's only inspecting lexical variables.

    I saw it. It used the same module, PadWalker.

    With -d debug, when I type V at for loop, I see "$x = 42" in the list. It seems there is some way for printing variable names...

    I know nothing for perlguts,and don't understand what is Alias here ...
    Hope you get some hints from superior monks.


      The problem is that a variable (i.e. the refrence) can be bound to multiple names.

      So using PadWalker doesn't really help... but I think I have a better idea how to solve it. :)

      Cheers Rolf

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
