( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I have a script which uses several input files, creates some temps and outputs others. It is tested via Test::Script and file content/creation is tracked via Test:Directory and Test::File.

After adding a new feature, making sure the unit tests are passing, the script tests are failing. I attempt to debug by running the test file as  perl -d:pdbtk t/path/to/test.t but cannot dive into the script itself.

It looks like the line executing the script from Tests::Script is the following:

(${$opt->{stdout}}, ${$opt->{stderr}}) = capture { system(@$cmd) };
but there is no way of 'stepping into' the execution.

I tried setting breakpoing inside the script, when entering the file, with  $DB::single = 1 but no success.

I tried adding debug flag to the  script_runs arguments, but it takes no effect.

edit: formatting

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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).
