[ID 20000306.005] debugger: line not optional for a
Message ID:

This is a bug report for perl from,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.26 running under perl 5.00503.

[Please enter your report here]

The documentation in perldebug for the a debugger command suggests that the
line argument is optional:

       a [line] command

However, the code in requires the line argument.

Is the proper solution to update the documentation, or to make the line
argument optional?

I can do a patch either way.

[Please do not change anything below this line]
