in thread IntelliJ IDEA for Perl !! Try it, use it, BE HAPPY !!

    Most people here still manually enter their Perl code using toggle switches.

Thank you .. I feel seen by this. My first work term (Fall '77) we had to enter the bootstrap program by hand in octal, using a number pad on the front panel of the first prototype. That allowed us to load the second bootstrap program using paper tape .. which enabled us to load the monitor program via 8" floppy disk drive.

I worked in octal for the next three years, and upgrading to hex was a bit of an adjustment. Forget 377 and 177776, now it's FF and FFFF. :)

Thanks PJ. We owe you so much. Groklaw -- RIP -- 2003 to 2013.

    Oh, I found this part --> _ <-- right below your posting. It looks like it broke right off the final "E".
