in reply to the best perl editor/ide on win32?

I use emacs:
  • syntax highlighting
  • autoindent according to syntax
  • integrated debugger
  • Shell window to run scripts in
  • if you don't want to, you *never* have to use the mouse
  • cross-platform
  • support for almost all languages
  • free
I know it's a bit of a pain to learn the keys, but I think its worth it.

Activestate is also working for a MS Development Studio plug-in, which will let you go the whole windows hog.

And finally, a number of people here use Visual SlickEdit, which is very nice.

      XEmacs is probably my favourite, although a little large. I've recently tried ActiveState's Komodo but it's very slow on my 500MHz Pentium.

    The syntax hilighting does not seem to work on an NT box, or am I just missing something?
