Debugging C code in under perl

Hi all,

I am kind of newbie and I need some help. I am using inline C code in my perl script and I like to set break-points in the C code and debug it.

I found out that is necessary to enable the C debugger, something like this:


This controls the MakeMaker OPTIMIZE setting. By setting this value to '-g', you can turn on debugging support for your Inline extensions. This will allow you to be able to set breakpoints in your C code using a debugger like gdb

But how do I actually do it? How do I set the "-g" option? Do I have to compile something?

If this point is solved and I can jump form perl code to c code in debug mode, next question would be: can I use the Komodo environment to do this?

Thanks in advance,
