If the program is a CGI then you can wrap it such that it runs ptkdb and remotes the debugger display to your screen via X. Then you invoke it form a browser and the debugger runs on the server invocation itself. Look up ptkdb documentation. -- Peter Scott http://www.perlmedic.com/ http://www.perldebugged.com/ http://www.informit.com/store/product.aspx?isbn=0137001274
