I just recently transferred companies, and some things that *used* to work for me in the debugger no longer do. I am now using 5.8.0.
1) my readline key support in the debugger seems to be gone. ie: i can't use up/down arrows to go through command history. i can't make edits on the debugger line with any keys other then backspace. My first guess is this is an environment issue, 'cept it all works fine at the unix CLI, or with less, or anything like that. only in perl do my escape keys not seem to get recognized. ReadLine is there. I'm unsure where else to look... 2) I like 'dumpvar.pl' and 'dumpValue'. so, i set up an alias as such: $DB::alias('list'} = 's/^list (.*)/&::dumpValue(\\\$1)/'; but, then when i do a "list %foo" it gives me an error that list is not recognized. it should convert that to &::debugValue (\%foo). yes, i 'require dumpvar.pl' as well. These two things are driving me batty. I have no idea what I had done so many years back to get these to do what I want them to do at my old work...
