This code is beyond my skill level. I can safely make a few more observations. Note that the next statement is a print to STDERR. This statement clearly prints the lines described in the DESCRIPTION section of the POD in the same file. From this, we can infer that $code is a reference to an array which contains the source code of the program being debugged, $l is the number of the line being executed and $f contains the name of that program (apparently preceded by '/.'). Also note that "use strict' is not in effect. Both of these observations support my previous comments about a symbolic reference. I still cannot figure out the purpose of the special characters in the symbolic reference.
