[Pdx-pm] perl -d

How do I get the perl debugger to open up in a different terminal
window? Presuming that I'm on pts/1 and I want to open the debugger on
pts/2, I think it should be as simple as setting the TTY PERLDB_OPTS
variable like so: 

	PERLDB_OPTS='TTY=pts/2' perl -d prog.pl

That doesn't do anything differently than just `perl -d prog.pl`.


PS ptkdb and ddd are options that won't work here; I'm in a strict
   no-GUI environment.
