in reply to [perldebugger] calling perldoc from within the debugger

Myself, I've never run into this issue, because I work inside of emacs normally (where you can run the perl debugger with Alt-x perldb), and I keep this cperl function bound to a key: (cperl-perldoc-at-point)

That does the equivalent of a "perldoc -f" on whatever function the cursor is pointing at.

    Actually I'm working a lot within emacs and sepia, but when I'm testing and posting stuff for the monastery I'm trying to do it in the more generally known debugger.

    And how to extend the debugger is always nice to know... 8)

      "Actually I'm working a lot within emacs and sepia,"... ah, can I take this opportunity to shill for a discussion group I'm trying to get going about emacs/perl issues?

      emacs-perl intersection

      (I've actually got some basic questions about sepia I'd like to get answered one of these days...)

        Excellent idea!

        I always had the suspicion that talking about emacs in the monastery is considered OT by the majority ... for sure if talking about elisp.

        Before joining I have to check my "privacy concerns" related to using a google service ...

        You may want to /msg other monks like joost or jplindstrom

        After joining my first question will be how to syntax highlight code in sepia... 8)

        Cheers Rolf

        UPDATE: The alternative could be to flag emacs stuff with a prepended [emacs] like in [emacs] perl info file.
