But there are some flaws with using a Perl editor. One of the most obvious is that you can't use a one-liner (perl -e"print'Hey';"
) inside of any editor because it will give you those annoying Bareword errors. Another flaw is that it will not run if the script uses <STDIN>. It won't wait for you to type anything thus the even more annoying Use of uninitialized value error. So to bypass all of this mumbo-jumbo you have these handy.
1. Your favorite editor that does not use STDIN but instead uses HTML forms to get input.
2. Know how to use MS-DOS prompt so that way you can take advantage of the wonderful input system easily designed for Perl
3. An online connection that can connect to PM
anytime you want :)
