in reply to Perl Programming Tools - (who, what, where, when, and why)

One program that hasn't been mentioned yet is the one I use: DZSoft's Perl Editor.

It's a windows based editor that integrates with ActiveState and highlights syntax (which is customizable). The two things I particularly like are the fact that I can do a quick syntax check with the F-12 key and it's got a browser so you can see what CGI programs will look like as well.

All in all, worth every penny of the $49 or so that I paid for it (shareware).

Now if they just had it for Linux...

There is no emoticon for what I'm feeling now.

    I added the following to my .vimrc noremap <F4> <ESC>:make<C-M> and the following, among others, to .vim/ftplugin/perl.vim setlocal makeprg=perl\ -Mstrict\ -wc\ % Now hitting F4 gets me a syntax check. In fact I've added a handful of other lines, so that F5 gives me a new window with clickable error messages that put the cursor on the line in question, and Ctrl-PageUp/Dn moves me from error to error as well. And once you master effective use of the ex command and the visual block mode, text almost edits itself.

    Makeshifts last the longest.
