    You can try the Perl debugger. For example:

    Code:
    $ perl -de 42
    
    Loading DB routines from perl5db.pl version 1.32
    Editor support available.
    
    Enter h or `h h' for help, or `man perldebug' for more help.
    
    main::(-e:1):   42
      DB<1> print 4 + 5
    9
      DB<2> print "foo" if 4 == 5
    
      DB<3> print "foo" if 4 == 2*2
    foo
      DB<4>

    Not at all, the examples I gave are very basic, but you can try interactively almost anything you want, such as difficult syntax, hairy regular expressions, complicated data structures, etc.
