in reply to Best perl editor on Ubuntu/Linux

Vim is one of the better Perl editors, in my opinion, but then I am a trifle 'old school'.

"Best" of anything is always a subjective matter.

    I second OGB's recommendation for Vim as a Perl editor. With the vim plugin "perlsupport" and the Perl modules Perl::Critic and Perl::Tidy it's a pleasure to use.

    GVim (GUIVim) can help ease the learning curve until you've learned Vim well enough that you don't need it anymore.

    Plz correct me, but isn't "vi" w/o "m" supposed to be "old school"? =)

      Methinks vi is way too feature rich. Ed is proper old school.
