in reply to Komodo IDE is now Free

Please forgive the naive question but what advantages does an IDE like Komodo give over just a terminal window where you're running your script? My usual setup when writing and executing simple scripts (less than 150 lines) is to have two tiled terminal windows open side-by-side. I edit my script in one using a vim and run it in the other terminal window.

    I learned Perl over Telnet and developed code like you do for many years. The advantages of an IDE are too numerous to list. Komodo's Mozilla-based tabbed interface is particularly awesome.

    The syntax check feature detects errors as you type, underlining broken code, with a popup error from perl upon mouseover. The snippet feature lets you build a list of reusable code so you can double-click to use Data::Dumper; for example. It has a REPL, can watch files in living color, and handles a huge number of languages (among very many other wonderful things).

    Komodo Edit and Komodo_IDE are both free now so check it out!
