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
