in reply to Perl Dev Kit - opinions sought

Thanks all for your comments. Ultimately I know I'd have to do my own playing around and testing but I was interested to hear what others had to say. Something to consider in there, thanks.

And besides, what's wrong with notepad?!! Just kidding. haha! I often use another editor but for conveniency find myself just bringing up notepad and doing it in that sometimes. I'm not too keen on debugging apps, I prefer to do things the hard way. The expense of effort up front is what tunes ones mind I find. The skill of having to debug your own code improves in time, plus enforces a lot of other mental abilities that I'm finding now beneficial when it comes to programming, so I like to force this effort on myself. I also like to enforce other habits instead of being too "tool" dependent.

I'm still undecided, for the reasons I think I'd need such a tool I end up working out a solution myself. There is only a few reason left why I'd bother and I'm assuming soon I'd find solutions to those things too.

Anyway, I'll have to consider all this some more.

    I understand the notepad thing. I worked with Microsoft's and also Borland's editors. It is all so easy that you merely think what you are doing!

    Besides the good thing of writing it all first with a pencil on a paper and then copying it all, another way is using the infamous notepad.

    Making your company get involved with Active Perl is a good thing, anyway. They have prooved to be a good Perl embasy in the Windows environment.

    And their strategy is more straight forward than others. I think. And that helps because they have a lot of things thought beforehand when you need to make some future decissions.
