DDD 3.3 (sparc-sun-solaris2.6) runtime error using perl debugger

Actually, I'm fairly certain this bug is not platform dependent.

This bug is very easy to reproduce, basically if you do
from the Program menu, "Run...", and for the arguments
type in something like:


This syntax is common for netgroups with NIS.

Here is sample code you can do this on:

    @ARGV > 0 || print "I'd like to have an argument please\n";

Select @ARGV to display the value you get.

When you try to do this, you get the following error:

DB<> exec "perl -d foo.perl address@hidden"
In string, @all now must be written as address@hidden at (eval 41) line 2, near
"perl -d foo.perl address@hidden"

This is not the behavior if you try to run it from the command line.
Basically because the scripts I'm trying to debug use arguments like
this, I can't debug them from ddd, but I could from the command line.

I would be happy to test any patches for this problem.
