Re: can't locate perldb.pl

Haven't seen that one, but does that file exist on your system? took a brief spin on mine, and

# find / -name perldb.pl -print
#

no such beastie on a normally functioning perl installation.

just a thought.

Re: can't locate perldb.pl

The perl interpreter installed with HPUX doesn't come with the debug module. Install perl5 from http://hpux.connect.org.uk/ and it will work:

$ /opt/perl5/bin/perl -d test.pl
Default die handler restored.

Loading DB routines from perl5db.pl version 1.07
Editor support available.

Enter h or `h h' for help, or `man perldebug' for more help.

main::(test.pl:3): print "hello world\n";
DB<1>

Re: can't locate perldb.pl

Thanks, to those who responded; I found the problem. Doing a "whereis" on perl returns /usr/contrib/bin/perl as the first entry, and that's what was being used in the script. Changing the first line to /opt/perl/bin/perl took care of the problem.

Also interesting to note was the versions:

# /opt/perl/bin/perl -v

This is perl, v5.6.1 built for PA-RISC1.1-thread-multi
(with 1 registered patch, see perl -V for more detail)
