You are right. My variables are not always treated correctly, although recently the situation improved. I remember that in the past you just can't work with my variables at all. I just have a utility that stripped my moving them to tail comments and then reversed the situation. But now the usage of my "official" as it is forced by the strict pragma. Which means that such a situation is less acceptable.

Also if you are using recursion my attribute can't be stripped at all. So this is a clear deficiently.

That's sad, because IMHO the debugger is the crown jewel of Perl language environment and remains in certain areas unmatched by competition(macros, flexibility of c command, etc.) Possibility of b lineno ($var eq "value") is indispensable for debugging complex programs. That's what I always stress in my Perl advocacy efforts" "Unmatched by competition."

So any deficiencies here are "highly undesirable."

That's, of course, raises the question of development priorities...
