You mean like debugging information, which prints lines as it runs code without needing print statements? Try the Perl Debugger perl -d scriptname

It's a bit more complicated than set -x since it's an interactive debugger, but not that complicated. The s command tells it to run the next line, and you can repeat that command by holding down enter. q quits.

See man perldebtut for more complete instructions.
