Best Perl REPL/Shell on Win (and Linux)?by LanX (Archbishop)
|on Jan 08, 2020 at 16:43 UTC||Need Help??|
LanX has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm very used to tweak the perl-debugger for my needs to get a shell experience.
Under Win it's not that easy anymore because of the lack of CTRL shortcuts.
I can get used to the fact that CMD translates CTRL-a to select-all instead of beginning-of-line ...
... but CTRL-r for reverse searching the history is a life saver!
Now I tried calling the debugger under Git-Bash, which has a decent xterm emulation under bash. Unless when I call perl -de0 this is lost.
My best bet ATM is to run the debugger under emacs.
so ... what do you use and does it work the same under Win and Linux?
°) !!dir in the debugger returns escape codes which "destroy" the terminal
