line 405

=head4 C<@dbline> Local alias to the magical line array, C<@{$main::{'_<'.$filename}}> , supplied by the Perl interpreter to the debugger. Contains the source.

and line 176

=head1 DATA STRUCTURES MAINTAINED BY CORE There are a number of special data structures provided to the debugger + by the Perl interpreter. The array C<@{$main::{'_<'.$filename}}> (aliased locally to C<@dbline> via glob assignment) contains the text from C<$filename>, with each element corresponding to a single line of C<$filename>.

Seems to be magic. Dunno if it depends on debug flags or just the context of the DB package like other magic (e.g. @DB::args )

Anyway, let us know if you'll find something details about that magic. ;-).

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.
