Unix systems often come with Perl already installed, but if yours does not, you can read perldoc perldebug here:
http://perldoc.perl.org/5.8.8/perldebug.html
and you find a perl installation to download here:
http://www.perl.org/get.html

I am supporting an application when I run the perl script from UNIX using putty, Some of the tasks are not happening and I wanted to know where it is stopping, and want to print the query as well as some message there to understand where this break down happened, how can I do that please help.

Thx
Dil.

if you start the script with
perl -d script
it will run under the debugger
