in thread Perl IDE

IDE written in Perl? Surely that must be Padre.

That's probably because it's the *only* one that is...

Bottom line: Perl doesn't need an IDE, as it arrives with both the compiler and the debugger. Throw in a mature editor and you're all set. Adding said editor will also benefit any needs for a more "integrated" environment, as most editors now come with an apt collection of configuration tools for any development needs.
If you *really, really* need a GUI for the whole debug process, the Devel::ptkdb tool will satisfy that need.

And as a bonus prize, you get to become a developer whose way of thinking isn't limited by the tools he use.

Stop saying 'script'. Stop saying 'line-noise'.
We have nothing to lose but our metaphors.

    Well, kephra is also an editor written in Perl and currently under development.

      True, but while at it, ptked is an editor written in Perl/Tk, which, along with previously mentioned ptkdb, and ptktrl/ptksh as an interactive shell gives you a perl-based solution for your development needs!
