in reply to Free Perl IDE for a begginer

My favorite editor right now, is vim; however, that's not really an IDE. There is a windows version, but I prefer Komodo Edit on Windows.

Komodo Edit says that it's a text editor, but it does quite a bit more. It can be linked to the perl interpreter and can emulate vim commands, so it's very powerful. There is also the Komodo IDE, but I haven't used it, and it isn't free, so I can't comment on it.

A lot of people like Eclipse with the EPIC plugin. (EPIC has the Perl extensions for Eclipse.) It can also be linked to Perl, and has a lot of nice features. It's written in Java, so it can eat a bunch of resources sometimes, but it can run on lots of platforms.

    I second the Eclipse with EPIC plug-in! IMHO only better thing for Perl is ActiveStates Komodo which I would probably use if it had better support for XHTML, CSS and JavaScript (no fancy WYSIWYG - just code completion).

    As of using a lot of "performance sometimes" - it's actually pretty good if you ask me. Until recently I was running it on a PIII 850 Mhz and 256 MB of RAM Compaq laptop dating back to '99 I think - admitted, I used Gentoo + XFCE for it. And it slowed down only after I started Opera, Apache and MySQL :D

    While not the most scientific test ...

    >>> Here I started Eclipse 3.4 with both Aptana (html/css...) and EPIC (perl) plug-ins active.

    Have you tried freelancing? Check out Scriptlance - I work there. For more info about Scriptlance and freelancing in general check out my home node.

      I was going to say that maybe it's just my old laptop not liking it, but your laptop specs are worse :-O

      Windows doesn't seem to like Java very much in general, that's probably why it felt a bit sluggish to use and ate up a ton of memory. In fact, I don't think Windows gets along with any Java apps I've seen... One of these days I might back all the junk up from that laptop and see how much it likes linux...
