Geany IDE with Perl

on Dec 31, 2019 at 01:20 UTC ( #11110792=perlquestion: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

bigal_george has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi in the last couple of days Ive gotten to like perl. But there doesnt seem to be any way to get Geany to provide code completion or syntax help so being new, Im forever switching to browser/perlmonks etc for more wizdom. Not a bad thing, but slows one down a tad. If any of you use Geary and know something I dont about getting it to work with syntax help in Perl please enlighten. Otherwise, Geany still works well enough for me to continue its use. As an aside, is there any way to get this forum to notify my email address when received replys? I can seem to find the switch notifications. Thanks vm. Alistair.

    If the speed of typing is whats slowing down your programming genius, surely you can afford any number of typists :P

    I've tried geany a few times, had occasion to kill the proc, lost a file -- dumb feature

      Yes, had RTFM and seen the autocompletion, but its so rudimentary as to be of little use. I'd hoped that there was an editor that also gave code hints like my Netbeans. Cheers, Genius Al.
