Free Perl IDE for a begginer
well, I have like two advices.
1) you will be spending a lot of time learning perl and thinking about your program design, so dont pick a tool/editor/ide that have a high learning curve, it will distract you.
2) no matter what you pick, even if later you feel you made a bad choice, just stick with it (and try to ignore that feeling) for as long as you find it bareable, you will be wasting more time looking for a different tool.
I've been looking for the best most amazing free open source editor since for ever now, and I've never found it, it doesn't exist (I think). I am surely addicted, I can never stop myself from trying free editors/ides. I couldn't even stop myself from replying to this node. I should probably join some text-editor or ide anonymous group (*grin*).
There will always be something you don't like about the ide or editor your use, maybe this is why there exists so many. So many people have tried!
Ahh! also you should check Scite , it integrates nicely with Perl
