#1086 closed enhancement (fixed)

Debugger -> Display Value should support any Perl expression

Reported by: dandv Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: Debugger for Perl 5 Version: 0.76
Keywords: Cc:


Coming from other IDEs, the "Debugger -> Display Value" function seems the closest Padre has to the concept of "Watches". It would be really helpful, though, to be able to watch any Perl expression, not just a variable.

Also, it would help if the Display Value menu item were replicated in the context menu, a la "Add to watches" in other IDEs.

Finally, the expression should be evaluated right away in the Debugger window. Right now, its value is only displayed after a Step.

Padre 0.76 installed from CPAN
v5.12.1 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread
Wx Version=(0.98) wxWidgets 2.8.10 unicode=(1)
