I know some of you will say it was a stupid idea to start writing it. This post is not for you.

It is for those who would like to have a cross platform, open source, easily extendable editor with integrated pod viewer, built-in refactoring tools and graphical debugger written in Perl.

I have started to write one and once it has a minimal set of feature I might be able to bribe Adam Kennedy to add it to Chocolate Perl.

So I am going to release the first version really soon but I'd like to have a name for it.

So this is a call for ideas on how to call it?

Please post your ideas here or in your blog and then send a link to me so I can link from my blog to the ideas.

If your suggestion is chosen I am going to buy you any of the books listed on or I can get you a an entrance ticket to one of the YAPCs or OSDCs.


Thanks for all the suggestions.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
