on this machine i was developin my perl/cgi scripts usin indigo perl and perlide. downside was indigo perl would eventually hog all resources and i would have to reboot. upside is perlide was rock solid.

gnow i'm runnin xp and upside is, indigo works a treat, downside is perlide won't compile my scripts. this aint that bad cos my scripts compiled most of the time, but the debugger would quickly display the output of the script, and i gneed the single step execution.

whenever i try to compile a script i get...


No DB::DB routine defined at G:/perl/indigo/perl/lib/Cwd.pm line 151.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at G:/perl/indigo/perl/lib/Cwd.pm line 151.
Compilation failed in require at ..\..\..\..\ide/perl5db.pl line 39.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at ..\..\..\..\ide/perl5db.pl line 39.
Compilation failed in require.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted.


also a perl script called cwd.pl is open wiv execution point at the line...


use Carp;


please can anybody tell me what to do. are there any workarounds? i've tried contactin the author, and it seems i have the latest release.

or failin that, are there any other perl ide packages available. i'll pay for one if it's reasonably priced.

I won't be able to help with the error message, but OptiPerl is another IDE for Perl that I've used on XP for about a year now with no problems. Not sure, but I think it costs $39. Good luck.

thanks for the recomendation, if i like it and decide to use it, i'll give you the points. atm i'm also tryin out sitepad pro, but it seems to be more oriented for java than perl, but it aint that bad.
