Perl debugging from Slick?
« on: September 26, 2006, 02:22:24 am »
Hi,

While I've never actually used it, I think you can debug using gdb from VS, no?  Would debugging perl thorugh perl -d from Slick be doable, then?

(If you can't debug using gdb from VS, then, erm, forget what I just said :-)

Yes, SlickEdit does have integrated debugging using GDB.  I'm not sure how this relates to "perl -d" though, since you are talking about a completely different command and debugger output language with perl.

If you are asking if a perl debugger is possible within our debugger integration framework, then the answer is yes, but it is A LOT of work.  We have a feature request on file for doing this, but it is not yet scheduled for any upcoming release.

Thanks for the reply.

Thanks for the reply; I didn't meant to imply the protocol for perl -d vs gdb was the same, just thinking aloud about "hey, if they did it for gdb, maybe for perl -d, too?"

Oh well, won't hold my breath for it.  You should publish the source for the GDB integration so people with too much free time can add Perl and Python for you  ::)
