I don't know any tool that does syntactical hilighting. What they do is lexical hilighting when this is possible, that is when tokenization is orthogonal with parsing. A real tool will have to hook to the Perl parsing engine to do a decent job in all cases. More generally I don't know of any litterate development environment in the Open Source world. We still use age old tool like emacs and vi which is a sure sign how backward we are.
BTW:I am told that MS-Visual tool are far mode advanced.
This is very odd because litterate tools would fit more naturally in Open Source world than in a closed one.
