in reply to Perl Development Environments

This is a big question. There are plenty of editors and interpreters for Perl, but there's no complete IDE. I'd like to come up with a good, freeware system for both UN*X and NT, but I lack the time. (Hmm... that would be a good "Fermat's Last Theorem" sort of deal... "I have developed a complete, GUI IDE for Perl that runs on all machines. Unfortunately, I lack the space in this margin..." )

For the Mac there's BBEdit, which I've been a fan of since its initial development. It does syntax coloring, etc.

A really good system would have editor/debugger integration, syntax coloring, toolkit GUI development, fast integration with HTML templating systems, etc.

Well, it would be a good open-source project, and I'll try to launch it once I have the time and energy... In the meantime, anybody else feel like it?

    Check out my link to PerlMagic in my original question. I think it is open source, but there are unfinished parts of it. The project could prolly use your help. I would definitely participate in this sort of project as the final result would make my life easier.
