+Xdebug (A PHP extension for debugging PHP scripts)
+The Xdebug extension helps you debugging your script by providing a lot of
+valuable debug information. The debug information that Xdebug can provide
+includes the following: stack traces and function traces in error messages,
+memory allocation and protection for infinite recursions. Xdebug also
+provides profiling information for PHP, scripts, code coverage analysis and
+capabilities to debug PHP scripts interactively with a debug client.
+This requires libedit.
+Once you install xdebug, add the following line to php.ini:
+ zend_extension = "/usr/lib/php/extensions/"
+Restart your webserver if you're using php with it, and as a recomendation
+from xdebug's README: "Write a PHP page that calls "phpinfo();" Load it
+in a browser and look for the info on the xdebug module. If you see it,
+you have been successful!"
