in reply to Perl Editor for Windows

You ahould use a Perl programming editor that is easy to use and easy to control. I suggest these:

DzSoft: One of the best Perl editors. Runs the script for you and checks the syntax.

EditPlus: Not only does Perl, it can do Java and C/C++ too. Also allows you to do templated laungauge structures to make ur own "editor".

I suggest you get both, its well worth it. :)

One person can change the corse of history. One person can destroy the human race. That one person is out there, I intend to find him.

    But there are some flaws with using a Perl editor. One of the most obvious is that you can't use a one-liner (perl -e"print'Hey';") inside of any editor because it will give you those annoying Bareword errors. Another flaw is that it will not run if the script uses <STDIN>. It won't wait for you to type anything thus the even more annoying Use of uninitialized value error. So to bypass all of this mumbo-jumbo you have these handy.

    1. Your favorite editor that does not use STDIN but instead uses HTML forms to get input.
    2. Know how to use MS-DOS prompt so that way you can take advantage of the wonderful input system easily designed for Perl
    3. An online connection that can connect to PM anytime you want :)
