raham has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi All I am a perl programmer and would like to know if there is an effective perl ide that can run on the Solaris environment. I tried active state and it would not configure with my machine as I have a intel based Solaris. Please advice where can I get an effective IDE for Perl with debugging facility.

    Try to look at Vim for Perl developers by TVSET. In my opinion, using VIM is effective and universal way to get power and platform independent tool for Perl development.

    Hope it helped.

    Check the entry "Is there an IDE or Windows Perl Editor?" in perlfaq3

    I prefer the highly cross-platform vim, myself.

    I use emacs for development, and it should work on Solaris as well. If you need a GUI debugger, you could try the Perl/Tk debugger. This would require that you install Perl/Tk, though.

    >perl -d:ptkdb hello_world.pl

    Update: the Tk debugger should be installed when you install Tk, but just in case, you can find it here. There's also the node Perl IDEs and Editors update.

    Cheers!

    Maybe you'd be interested in EPIC, a set of Eclipse plugins.

    Makeshifts last the longest.

      Thats my choice Aristotle, I have been using it for a couple of months and am quite happy with it.

    Emac ... The 'swiss-army-knife' for Unix
    nedit ... An excellent visual editor for X
    ...

    Personally I use Emac sometimes, but most of time I edit my Unix files with Windows based editor 'ConText', via SMB mount, combined with 'ddd' visual debugger for Perl/C/etc.
