#634 Debug does not work on Windows (+ workaround)

Debugger (177)
De Lange

Hi, i ame new one who starting with Perl.
I got the info to use "eclips" for debug perl software.
I have installed Active Perl 5.12.4 Build 1205
Padwalker 1.92 / Patthools 3.33
Epic 0.6.40 and Eclips 3.7
Running the program works very well.
Debug mode does not work. I got always this message.

Use of uninitialized value in subroutine dereference at (null) line 1.
perl5db.pl did not return a true value.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted.

Timed out while waiting for Perl debugger connection.
You can fix this problem by editing cwd.pm
Epic bug reppoet 2907155

I checked the bug report and the line in the file cwd.pm is already
What can i do to resolve this problem thanks. Marc.

    For windows users, follow these instructions: https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=56225

    It works once the line is:
    if (defined &DynaLoader::boot_DynaLoader) {

    instead of if (eval 'defined &DynaLoader::boot_DynaLoader')
