in reply to Pretty Win9x Perl Editor/IDE?

Does anyone have any good statistics on whether or not IDE's actually help someone learn to code or not? It would seem to me, that if someone has the crutch of instant bug notification, syntax highlighting, etc, etc, they are less like to learn to code, and more likely to learn how to appease the IDE itself.

Anyone else have any ideas?
