PEARL and script debugging question
Where can I find some debugging scripts for Pearl?
Ok It's not me that needs it.. My cousin needs to debug some pearl on his co website, wanted to know if you guys would give me some info to relay.. Btw,, he is fluent in a lot of software (engineering) just not pearl i guess, so just answer this as though your talking to an engingeer,, hahaha so he can understand it.. not like your talking to a layman..
Thanks guys.. I owe ya!
I use perl a little, but am not very good at debugging.
You may want to see if your friend is willing to post the code and tell us what is happening and what is supposed to happen.

thanks izzy I'll send him a note,,
here is a little tidbit,,
The best way to debug
is to use lots of print
"It has come till here 1"; for command line scripts and
$q = new CGI;
print "It has come till here 1";
for cgi scripts
What about the debugger for perl? I believe it is -w option for perl. It prints out warning messages for common errors. also you can use strict to check you variables. Another good practice is to check all returns with an or die"Your comment here"
When I was learning (actually I still am) perl this site was a great help.

yes, 'perl -w script.pl' works very well, i use it a lot.
