Ok thanks, I did not know that one can debug perl
that way. that is usefull to know.
I am trying now to do this, for some reason
it is not working, but I have not yet looked
more to see why (it perl -d is not starting,
as something is terminating right away). btw
I am using XP pro, sp 2.

$ which latex2html
$ perl -d latex2html foo.tex
Loading DB routines from perl5db.pl version 1.27
Editor support available.
Enter h or `h h' for help, or `man perldebug' for more
Debugged program terminated. Use q to quit or R to
restart, use O inhibit_exit to avoid stopping after
h q, h R or h O to get additional info.
May be this from man perldebug is realted to the
"In Perl, the debugger is not a separate program
the way it usually is in the typical compiled
environment. Instead, the -d flag tells the
compiler to insert source information into
the parse trees it's about to hand off to the
interpreter. That means your code must first
compile correctly for the debugger to work on it.
Then when the inter-preter starts up, it preloads a
special Perl library file containing the debugger.
The program will halt right before the first run-time
executable statement (but see below regarding
compile-time statements) and ask you to enter a
debugger command. Contrary to popular expectations,
whenever the debugger halts and shows you a line of
code, it always displays the line it's about to
execute, rather than the one it has just executed."
I have the feeling it will be another long night
debugging this, all to get latex2html to work.
Sometimes I think may be I should just switch to
Linux and be done with it :)
thanks for your help
