Vim as a Perl IDE (perl-support.vim)

Greetings Monks

I gave my first presentation on a Perl subject the other night, a talk on how I use Vim as a Perl IDE. It was for the San Francisco Perl Mongers. While I use both Vim and Emacs, I was lucky enough to have this opportunity to spend a few weeks researching how to customize Vim to make my Perl development more productive.

I discovered a plugin named perl-support.vim, and it has made writing code a lot more enjoyable. I can tidy up, critique (Perl::Critic), debug, profile, run as a command line program, and do a few other things using a few hot keys from my Vim buffer. I also implemented an auto-completion feature, and a taglist plugin, as well as cvs and subversion capabilities.

My talking notes are here along with my .vim directory. There's Any free perl editors? node which discusses using various editors for Perl, but I'm wondering specifically if you use any helpful plugins for Vim while developing Perl.

UPDATE: I didn't see .vimrc for perl programmers node when I was writing this, there are lots of good links there to more resources.

Edit: g0n - moved from Perl News to Meditations

[stevieb]: How do you mean?
[1nickt]: They assume that I want things I don;t and don;t provide things I do want. Looking for a 17" laptop with 4k (even 3K display) and full numeric-pad keyboard.
[1nickt]: They assume that if I want a 17" monitor I could not possibly want 4k screen
[1nickt]: They assume I do not need a DVD drive
[1nickt]: Heh, or they assume that if I want all that I am a "gamer" and I must want red backlighting for the keyboards and that I will pay $3500 ...
[stevieb]: what is your budget? HP 17" 4k display, DVD writer, full numeric keypad
