Of course we can all point at "Perl Debugged" but I don't know any other book talking about debugging.
I'm not aware of any other Perl debugging books. One I would *not* recommend is "Debugging Perl" - which really isn't very good at all.
I've come across people getting it mixed up with Perl Debugged (which is quite nice) so I thought it worth mentioning.
What books out there are of use for those wanting to learn debugging? They don't necessarily have to be specificly about *Perl*. Is there a way to learn debugging other than learning the capabilities of a debugger ?
I'd say that there is more to debugging than using a debugger. The majority of my debugging techniques are now oriented around tests so I would recommend the test books listed on perl-qa :-) They're mostly on the Wiki now too at <http://mungus.schwern.org/~schwern/cgi-bin/perl-qa- wiki.cgi?TestingBooks>.
