PHP 5.4 and PHPDBG in OS X

I got PHPDBG enabled in PHP 5.4 although I’ve never bothered giving it a try. Recently, I decided to play around with it to try to compare it with Xdebug. I tested it with a minimal Drupal installation. Installation PHP and PHPDBG I use homebrew-php to install PHP 5.4. Versions 5.4+ have the flag --with-phpdbg if you wish to include PHPDBG during installation therefore installation is simply via invoking brew install php54 --with-phpdbg. »
