EPIC retrieves values of all variables after every
debugging step. This leads to extreme slowdowns or even
crashes if any variable's content extends several
At present, I don't see a way to ask perl -d for a
variable's length before dumping the actual content, or
to get only the start of the content. However,
implementing support for excluding variables from being
dumped may be a reasonable workaround.
