The remote debugging might help. What you need to do
is copy a small stub program to the remote machine.
The stub talks to the IDE (running on the local machine,
which is either Linux or Windows) through XML-RPC.
The stub is in pure Python so you can run it
on HPUX if you have Python available there.
Though this is kinda slow and I wouldn't recommend
it if the HPUX box is your main development
machine. This was intended to debug stuff running
on a remote deployment machine.
