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

Some off the top of my head suggestions.

  • layer (onions have layers - so do ogres - so does Perl).
  • perl maker (doesn't everything have to come down to pm? perl monks, perl mongers, perl module...)
  • pearl (just to confuse people)
  • open perl
  • pesto (no good reason, it just sounds cool)
  • pronto (no good reason, it just sounds cool)
  • Nonae (which is dumb because only calendar geeks will get it)

    If it's called Pesto it should be based on pico. After all, pesto is made from Pine nuts!

      I personally believe that as an italian guy I should confirm that the name is very appealing! Just to pinpoint a detail though: pine nuts are a fundamental ingredient of pesto, but just not the main one. Of course we may use nano as a base for szabgab's IDE, which would bring us to... nesto? No, I don't think so, since it's horrible. OTOH serendipitously it suggests me of nest, which IMHO is fine albeit not Perl-related in any way I can think of. A nest, in fact, conveys the idea of (a nice and warm) environment. There only remains to find a suitable backronym for it, or not?

      Well, how 'bout a self-recursive one: "Nest: Enhanced Sourcecode T..." D'Oh, I can't think of a suitable word beginning with T!

      If you can't understand the incipit, then please check the IPB Campaign.
        Well, sure, pine nuts aren't basil or olive oil, but basil's not a mail client AFAIK. It just wouldn't carry the joke the same.

        "Pine nuts" is also a gentle nudge to all those who take pico and nano everywhere when there are "real" text editors like vim and emacs out there. No, I'm not going to start a second holy war in the same node by comparing emacs and vim to each other. ;-)

        BTW, why aren't more people using joe to edit their Java?
