simple, extensible Perl debugger


Devel::ebug is a simple and extensible Perl debugger with a clean API. Using this module, you may easily write a Perl debugger to debug your programs. Alternatively, it comes with an interactive debugger, ebug.

Perl's current debugger is currently 2,600 lines of magic and special cases. The code is nearly unreadable: fixing bugs and adding new features is fraught with difficulties. The debugger has no test suite which has caused breakage with changes that couldn't be properly tested. It will also not debug regexes. Devel::ebug is aimed at fixing these problems and delivering a replacement debugger which provides a well-tested simple programmatic interface to debugging programs. This makes it easier to build debuggers on top of Devel::ebug, be they console-, curses-, GUI- or Ajax-based.
