in thread Debugger line numbering anomaly

  • is the problem reproducible if you copy the code from this thread?
  • did you include warn to see if the compilation recorded the right line-numbers?
  • can you narrow down which code-line is starting the problem?

There are internal arrays which hold all parsed lines of the debugger, you could check there if the debugger got it right.

perldebguts :

Each array @{"_<$filename"} holds the lines of $filename for a file compiled by Perl.

    First, I compared (in the programmer's text editor Epsilon) v 1.5.1 and 1.5.3. Only a few differences; none seems significant to this issue.

    So I copied the 1.5.3 version to /usr/share/perl/5.26/ on the Xubuntu machine. Same (wrong) debug behavior as with the original 1.5.1 version. Further, the debug command "x @{$main::{'_<'}}" is also missing the (original) line 5. This suggests (so far) that it's a Perl 5.26 bug, and not a bug.

    Still exploring ...

      well, good luck ignoring the other stuff I asked you to check.

        How is different from what I posted?

        No, the script doesn't have Windows/DOS line endings. If it did, it wouldn't matter to Linux, if I call it via 'perl'. But it clearly runs fine on Linux (at least my Xubuntu and Debian installations). And the debugger issues no warnings.

        What kind of warning could I insert that would help? It's not a runtime problem; it's a problem of the debugger missing a line, and so subsequent line numbers are off by one.

        I note in the POD text:

        @dbline Local alias to the magical line array, "@{$main::{'_<'.$filename}}" , supplied by the Perl interpreter to the debugger. Contains the source +.

        That's pretty clear that the Perl 5.26.1 interpreter is providing a buggered line array.

        I don't know how to follow up with that, except to upgrade to something newer.
