i have found myself in a situation where perl -e 'use MyApp' compiles fine, but
<Perl> use MyApp; </Perl>
dies with errors. It would be nice if I could use the perl debugger during the apache startup, but the docs for Apache::DB are pretty thin.

what strategies might i pursue to figure out why my module fails to load under Apache/1.3.36 (Unix) mod_perl/1.29? i have been skimming but it seems that my options are to use gdb for startup and Apache::DB for debugging requests.

is there any way to use the perl debugger during apache startup?

update: i have of course verified that @INC is the same in both scenarios..

update 2: i managed to track down my problem the hard way (turns out Rose::DB::Object does things a little differently when $ENV{MOD_PERL}), but the general question still stands: is there any way to use the perl debugger during apache startup?

  • 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).
