( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
To answer my own question, this seems to work:

use strict; use warnings; BEGIN { push @DB::typeahead,"b testsub","r"; } sub testsub { warn "inside"; } warn "outside"; testsub();

> perl -d d:/tmp/pm/ Loading DB routines from version 1.57 Editor support enabled. Enter h or 'h h' for help, or 'perldoc perldebug' for more help. auto(-2) DB<1> b testsub auto(-1) DB<2> r outside at d:/tmp/pm/ line 14. at d:/tmp/pm/ line 14. DB<2> s inside at d:/tmp/pm/ line 10. at d:/tmp/pm/ line 10. main::testsub() called at d:/tmp/pm/ line 16 DB<2>

all it needs is more syntactic sugar to be able to read a history file.

and a wrapper module could handle the fact that

> @DB::typeahead is not a supported interface and is subject to change in the future


here a list of older discussions regarding typeahead, the older the better: click <Search>

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
