Perl, Fedora 20 and the debugger
Message ID:
I have encountered an odd issue with Fedora 20's version of Perl and I am
trying to get it fixed.

The issue is that the "y" and "X" commands do not function in their build
of Perl. I am not certain if it is something in the debugger itself or in

The bugzilla report is:

The claim from the maintainer on Fedora is "it has been broken for a long
time". I have a hard time believing that.

Does anyone have a better idea what is going on here? I don't have the
time at the moment to root cause this.  (I will this weekend, I hope.)

Switching distros is not an option. I have too many machines I will have
to fix.
