I don't know if the second part of the title is worth anything but I hope that it gets a few more people to look at this thread.

For many years I have been an advocate of the VI editor. All of my Perl programs have been written in VI and tested and debugged by the command line. I have purposely steered away from the gui programming tools because there seems to be a learning curve with each new release of a programming suite. Also, I have been able to accomplish everything that I have wanted via the VI editor and the debugging methods I use.

Those that work with me and for me are used to the gui suites which other languages have (such as Micro---- developer suite) and have inquired if anything can be purchased that allows you to highlight, step through, notate, debug, track changes, and etc all in one package. Obviously not too many colleges today teach anything about VI. Don't get me wrong I am not knocking the suites. I know that Active State offers a "plug-in" for one of the developer suites but I am seeking more information...

So my question to the monastery is the following: What is the community using to create their perl programs? (and why?).

A small definition of our setup is WIN2000 Pro dual boot Linux PC's on the developer's desks. The servers where all of the perl programs reside are Linux or AIX platforms. Thanks for hearing...

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
