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.

[ambrus]: Corion: that's not true. Actually for Christmas and Thanksgiving, a lot of people buy electronics such as cameras as present, then many of them figure out they don't need it,
[ambrus]: and the electronics gets reselled almost new, but it has to be sold at half price because otherwise everyone chooses to buy the new product which has fewer risk of selling damaged products labelled as almost new.
[ambrus]: You can actually get a lot of useful cheap really almost new products that way, with only a little risk of scams.
[ambrus]: That's what some of the "Black Friday" sales are about.
[Corion]: ambrus: Well, usually, these people don't have in their description "mail me at dodgy_reseller # g m a i l | co m" , replace the "#" by "@" :)
[Corion]: Oh, and the "o" in "com" is a zero
choroba orders a camera from Ole Scæmmer
[ambrus]: Corion: ah. that's different. the ones I mean are selling at reputable sites like ebay that usually filters scammers out pretty quickly (as well as filters a lot of legitimate users who then get annoyed that the biggest providers exclude them)
