Word is a really lowsy text editor. Wait... Word is just plain
lousy. Anyway, for the last few months, I've been using Textpad
, which has been recommended by
other Perl coders on this site. It's really good, stable, and has
syntax highlighting, for a number of languages. I think this is the
best 30 bucks I've ever spent in my life. You can download a trial
version and check it out before you buy. Good luck!
I've recently been using UltraEdit-32 from the advice of others on this site and I think I like it better than Textpad. I really like the ability to navigate to subroutines. It too is only 30 bucks.
