/window new hide /exec -interactive perl -d -e 0 But that doesn't echo your own commands into the window, so maybe something like /exec -interactive tee /dev/stderr | perl -d -e 0, but that doesn't seem to want to quit here without a kill. Anyways, being able to actually debug irssi scripts would be nice... Is this an irssi-specific problem? Is debugging Perl embedded into another program in a way similar as in irssi rather unexplored territory, or is it really supposed to work? Perhaps it's because irssi (glib) controls the main loop and not Perl? Regards, Wouter.
