This is going to sound like a total newbie question, but I've been using scripting langs for a while now, and I've never had, had to use, needed, configured, or wanted a debugger. I've been playing with Komodo a bit, and about a week of monkeying around with it has revealed that I have no frakkin' clue how to use a debugger.
I followed their help files and gave it a whirl, but it was too jargonized for my comprehension. (Kind of like when I started Perl, list context and scalar context become harder to understand becuz WTF is a scalar anyway?)
Does anyone know of a good overview of debugger concepts or better yet, a human readable tutorial for the perl debugger. (Better still, both) Thanks for the info....
DISCLAIMER: I never claimed to be a perl guru baby, you'll just have to take me as I am.
