Hmmmm, indeed.

A bit of a status update on Scooby.  It really only works reliably under
5.6.1 of Perl.  There turned out to be too many module
dependencies/breakages when Perl got updated, and I've not had the time
to work out what has to happen to Scooby and its 3rd party modules to
fix things - I have tried Scooby with a bunch of the latest Perls, but
it breaks in a number of places (mainly the 3rd party modules break or
cause Scooby to break).  In summary, Scooby was created to test the
assumption that a debugger-type interface could be used to access a
programs "state" prior to relocation.  The project showed that this was
the case.  For my part, I actually think the Agent Perl technology
offers a better platform to build on (that's why I put it in my first
book - I was hoping it would draw attention to the technology and help
it catch on).
