in reply to Name a Perl IDE - get a Perl book or YAPC ticket

I wouldn’t call it * stupid *, it’s probably a fun job and great learning experience:-) However it does seems like reinventing wheels… There are many IDE’s around all more (or less) supporting what you’re looking for. You will never find an IDE that is a 100% perfect.

I myself use Eclipse, the EPIC plugin (open source Perl IDE based on the Eclipse platform) and the ActiveState Perl distribution. For me this is the winning team (I have to add that I am sort of forced to work with Windows XP). Of course if an IDE implemented in Java conflicts with your religion its end of story:-) After working with IBM’s WSAD I kind a stuck with Eclipse as I can use it for multiple programming languages.

A name? How about IPDE Integrated Perl Development Environment?
Looking forward to the release, I’ll give it a try.

    I for one am the kind of guy who sits around in vanilla EMACS or Textpad but would investigate something if it came bundled with my Perl distro.
