[tpm] Graphical perl debugger Windows 7.

  I tend to use Eclipse with EPIC, and a homebrewed Perl (virtually 
identical to Strawberry, which would do fine). This is all free stuff. 
Source level debugging works OK, although I have had a few issues with 
Catalyst applications on Windows. In practice, I tend to use the classic 
command-line debugger for most debugging, but EPIC does do source-level 
stepping, variable inspection, etc. Eclipse also has the advantage I'm 
using the same environment to edit templates, CSS, JavaScript, etc.

For bar-column charts, I now use a JavaScript toolkit (Dojo) rather than 
rendering them server-side. This makes them more interactive, and they 
look better too.

With a little patience, most modules which can work in ActiveState will 
install in Strawberry. So do a lot which don't work/aren't available in 
ActiveState, as you can fiddle with the scripts.

All the best
