NAME

Devel::Command::DBSub::DB_5_8_6 - Devel::Command debugger patch for 5.8.6 and up

SYNOPSIS

  # in .perldb:
  use Devel::Command;

DESCRIPTION

Devel::Command::DBSub::DB_5_8_6 loads a patched version of the debugger's DB() routine that will work with Perl 5.8.6 and up.

alt_586_DB

This subroutine is essentially a copy of the 5.8.6 DB::DB function, with the code necessary to pick up custom functions patched in.

NOTE

The POD documentation was removed from this subroutine to prevent this documentation becoming confusing. If you want real docs on how the debugger works, see perldoc perl5db.pl.

SEE ALSO
