I'm working on code from the makepp project, so I can't rename my executable to add a .pl extension. Instead, I've symlinked makepp.pl -> makepp so that the editor is happy, which it is. My problem is that if I set a breakpoint in makepp.pl, when I hit it, the debugger doesn't understand the file, doesn't switch to it, and doesn't parse/highlight it. The symlink seems like a workable solution to the no-extension problem, but there's this wrinkle...
