Changing Variable Values

Have a simple question.

How can I change variable values when debugging.

I am using Perl Expression View.

If I type "$a=5;" it says "

The Variables view does not refresh after executing commands in Perl Expression
view. A variable's value is nevertheless changed correctly (at least in
my tests). You should see the updated value after a step.

Seeing it after a step can be too late!

I agree, the Variables view should be refreshed after executing anything
in the Perl Expression view (at least - refresh the expanded variables).
Feel free to add a feature request along these lines. Until this is implemented
you can still use "print" in the expression view explicitly.
