This is a truly amazing discovery for me.
As it turns out, it is possible to debug Perl threads, forked processes as well as CGI programs. You can even debug modules which have been preloaded, inspect object-oriented Perl stuff and even verify user-defined regular expressions on the fly.
Just to think of all those late night debugging episodes doing it my boring way when I could have saved hours and hours (if not days) by doing it the right Perl way.
To think that I was so naive as to believe I knew most there was to know about Perl.
This fine book (Pro Perl Debugging) has turned out to be a real eye-opener for me.
While not for the light-hearted, any true Perl person worth his or her weight in salt will definitely have to read this book, which I recommend highly.
