Good perl editor? Yes, Crimson!

in reply to good perl editor

I am using Crimson Editor (a Win app), which is freeware, and has several nifty treats. I like the user interface, it looks good, it is fast, helpful, you can create your own macros, and I don't have to do silly things like save, ftp, open another window to execute the script, etc. Just one-click-while-editing-to-test-a-script...

By the way, Crimson Editor has syntax files included in the ditribution for a lot of programming languages (not just Perl) and other types of apps where scripts are used, e.g. MySQL and Apache.

[Corion]: LanX: Maybe have an infinite-loop cmd file? Much easier than trying to manage that from within Perl IMO
[Corion]: Alternatively, relaunch the application from cron (or a Windows cron) every minute
[LanX]: will try infinite loop ...
[Corion]: :START ... goto START
[LanX]: oh .bat you mean?
[LanX]: obscure cult ...
[Corion]: LanX: cmd.exe is just another way to launch Perl
[LanX]: I know its a cult... and I repent it every time
[LanX]: But cygwin comes with path problems and powershell requires too much learning for me
[LanX]: eshell in emacs is often my resort in development
