With Windows, we bought a nice debugger--any one know of such a beast GPLed
under Linux? Being able to watch those vairables was a life-saver. A decent
IDE would be nice as well (For using .net, one has Microsoft's Visual Studion
in Windows--result can run in linux using mono).
there's ddd (apt-get install ddd) which is a GUI frontend for other
debuggers, for perl it uses perl itself (perl has build-in debugger),
it's fairly intuitive (in a sense that it has menus and dialogs for all
common debugger functionality) and also gives you direct access to perl
as far as IDE goes - xterms, vim or gvim (emacs?), etags etc. (as far
as I can tell IDEs are mostly for environments where you don't have
tools that play well together and no _good_ window managers)
