Hi, Irssi is an IRC client using Perl for scripting. I'm trying to attach a debugger to its embedded Perl.
I'm using PERLDB_OPTS="RemotePort=127.0.0.1:5000" to let it connect to a socket. Running and debugging a perl script started in the "normal" way works fine: "perl -d -e 0" connects to the socket and I can control the debugger from there. Now I changed irssi so that the arguments it passes to perl_parse and PERL_SYS_INIT3 include "-d". Then when starting irssi, it connects to the socket, and prints its usual "Loading DB routines"... "Enter h"... But when I give any command (including "h") it doesn't respond. The irssi (and its Perl scripts) continue to run fine. Someone an idea of what could be going wrong? Thanks. Wouter.
