GUD perldb improvements

From: Rob McMillin

This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
 not to your local site managers!!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

In GNU Emacs 20.7.1 (i386-redhat-linux-gnu, X toolkit)
 of Tue Jun 13 2000 on porky.devel.redhat.com
configured using `configure  --mandir=/usr/man --infodir=/usr/info 
--prefix=/usr --libexecdir=/usr/lib --sharedstatedir=/var --with-gcc --with-pop 
--with-x-toolkit i386-redhat-linux-gnu'

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

These are feature requests rather than bugs, but I believe they could be
implemented fairly readily.

1) When I type "M-x perldb", I'm asked "Run perldb (like this):".  I
   can't quote strings I might want to pass to perldb.  For instance, if
   I want to pass back an ISO-formatted time string (such as "2001-02-12
   15:03:22"), I can't do it because gud doesn't understand about
   quoting conventions.

2) Similarly, it would be useful if the tab key in the minibuffer when
   "Run perldb (like this):" was active were bound to
   comint-dynamic-complete or other electric key mechanism.  As it
   stands, I have to type in the entire path to every script I need to
   debug, unless I've debugged it before in this session.  This would
   be especially useful after you change directories.

3) Finally, if I need to pass additional command-line switches to Perl
   (such as the -T (data taint) switch), I can't do it in the
   minibuffer.  -T must occur before just about every other switch, and
   I have no control over the ordering of the switches.  In other words,
   it would be useful if there could be a "C-u M-x perldb" kind of magic
   that would allow me to see the REAL command line (complete with -I
   switches, which a ps -efw clearly tells me are present) and modify

Thanks for listening.
