Broken (or possibly outdated) links in editor lists (2013-10-25)

A few nights ago, I went looking to find other options in the way of editors to try out. I found links to Code Editors and Development Environments and Perl Development Tools, and began opening links to see what each was about. I found several links, however, that appear to have suffered bit-rot, and thought I should bring it to someone's attention. Where I could, I have tried also to find or suggest updated or possibly better links.

Hope this information proves helpful. Your thoughts?

Wrap list in readmore tags, due to length/appearance on section page.

    G'day atcroft,

    While I don't actually use any of those listed, I did have an Xcode link (not the one listed here) that was also broken. As you suggest, does appear to be the correct (current) link for Xcode.

    What I do use (almost universally) is vim. I checked for this in Code Editors and Development Environments. The VIM link to seems fine; although, I'm unsure why it's in uppercase.

    However, the Perl and VIM link to looks like a dud: it works OK but takes you to a page with <title>Vim documentation : vim online</title> and absolutely nothing about Perl at all (in fact, the only match for /perl/i is if_perl.html in the address bar).

    I have bookmarked: it has the same <title>. Perhaps this would be a better option. I did a search for 'perl' on it came back with ~200 results - I didn't investigate further.

    -- Ken

      Thanks - I've updated the Vim entry.

    Thanks! Most of the ones you've pointed out have now had their links updated. CodeWright, Notepad+ and Perl Code Editor have been removed as they are dead projects as far as I can tell.

    Perl Development Tools is not part of the site documentation, so it would be up to its author to update it.
