in reply to Cross-platform development: editors

You didn't say what you are using in your native environment. Is it Komodo?

I haven't tried Komodo myself, so I don't know how it compares, but Eclipse is an obvious suggestion (that has been made many times over :). It has all the features you enumerate (except maybe programmable macros, but I don't know what you mean by that). The downside is that it's probably on the resource intensive end of the spectrum, though in my experience it performs better on Windows than on Linux (never tried OS/X).

Yeah, there's a Perl plugin called EPIC.

    great tip about EPIC. I used eclipse a while back when I was heavy into java and never knew about (nor pursued) a perl plugin. I always thought you would have to pry emacs out of my cold dead hands. I have been playing with it all day and it's great. Thanks!

    We are also going through an IDE evaluation period and agree strongly with OP's points.

    However, unless it is strangely hidden somewhere, EPIC does not have code folding. In fact I remember there being a poll for wish-list features for the next version; of which one option was folding.

    So it is not even a guaranteed feature to be included in the next version.

      Hmmm, you're right, the folding in eclipse that I saw was for Java files and evidently is part of the JDT, not the Workbench. I stand corrected!

    Ah, good point: I currently use Kate or Emacs on Linux (Kate is huge, but I like it) and Komodo or UltraEdit on Windows.

    require General::Disclaimer;
    Perl is

      UltraEdit on Windows is awesome. Sadly, most of my work is in Windows these days.
        I find with Ultraedit you don't need code folding, because of the function list thingy. Just switch it to sort-alphabetically, and you can just double click whatever function you want.

        Also, Ultraedit's regex (not PCRE although I've been bugging them about it) recursive folder search (and replace) are great.

        Pity it doesn't have CVS integration :(
