    Greetings. I'm returning to EPIC after another long break. 3rd time lucky :)

    I have created a ~/debug folder on a remote system, and placed the relevent debugging files in there … autoflush_epic.pm, dumpvar_epic.pm, epic_breakpoints.pm, perl5db.pl

    I add ~/debug to my include path, set my remote debugging stuff, and go to run my startup script. I get:

    Number found where operator expected at perl5db.pl line 6140, near "OS/2"
      (Might be a runaway multi-line // string starting on line 6117)
    Semicolon seems to be missing at perl5db.pl line 6145.
    Bareword found where operator expected at perl5db.pl line 6147, near "<xterm> window"

    (Missing operator before call?)
    Number found where operator expected at perl5db.pl line 6151, near "number 3"
    (Do you need to predeclare number?)

    Execution of perl5db.pl aborted due to compilation errors.

    I'm using perl v5.8.8.

    What's up with this version of perl5db.pl ??? Thanks.
