  Not being an Emacs user, no I haven't tried that.  Doesn't Emacs
  just use the running perl debugger and redisplay it's output? 
  Does it do it by pid?  Do you get some kind of error message from 

  I've always just used it in the shell I launched the Apache process
  from. If you get me some more info about the problem you're seeing
  I'll play around with Emacs and see if I can get it to work for you.
