NAME - Perl 5.6 debugger patch


  # in .perldb
  use Devel::Command; 


Devel::Command::DBSub::DB_5_6 encapsulates the DB() subroutine to be used to patch the debugger when Devel::Command is loaded. This module should work for any sub-version of Perl 5.6.

The import subroutine in this module determines whether or not the perl we're running under is perl 5.6.x or not.


This subroutine is essentially a copy of the 5.6 DB::DB function, with the code necessary to pick up custom functions patched in.

SEE ALSO, notably the documentation for the DB::DB subroutine.
