I am a non-programmer trying to figure out a problem in a perl program written by someone who is now on vacation, I need help. My question is this: is there anyway to find out what steps a command goes thru to complete an action?  There is a "golive" function in this program that publishes content to our extranet - I need to see the individual steps involved. Is there any hope? Your help is MUCH appreciated. Thanks

What ozo means is:  You can step through the code using the -d switch to invoke the debugger. If you're trying to debug a cgi script, though, there are extra tricks involved.
