"...step through code...find myself outside of the code...Just Perl and what comes with it"

What about the old school/poor man's approach: use constant DEBUG => 1;? Then print or say, printf, Data::Dumper or Data::Dump, Sys::Syslog bla... if DEBUG. No performance impact if DEBUG is false as far as i understood. And probably you make some poor admins happy when they are on night shift. Please feel free to correct me if i miss the point. Best regards, Karl

    I have found myself using the use constant DEBUG => 1 approach frequently. My problem is that I just like to grab the keys, put the top down, and drive through the code with just occasional glances at the road signs. Just need to be a little more disciplined...
