This is a big question. There are plenty of editors and interpreters
for Perl, but there's no complete IDE. I'd like to come up with
a good, freeware system for both UN*X and NT, but I lack the time.
(Hmm... that would be a good "Fermat's Last Theorem" sort of deal...
"I have developed a complete, GUI IDE for Perl that runs on
all machines. Unfortunately, I lack the space in this margin..."
For the Mac there's BBEdit, which I've been a fan of since its initial development.
It does syntax coloring, etc.
A really good system would have editor/debugger integration, syntax coloring,
toolkit GUI development, fast integration with HTML templating systems, etc.
Well, it would be a good open-source project, and I'll try to launch it
once I have the time and energy... In the meantime, anybody else feel like it?
