Mercurial huh. There are lots of good things said about Mercurial.

With the large list of your CPAN contributions, you're clearly a very prolific coder. It makes me curious what tools you use to aid you in being most efficient. In addition to Mercurial, do you use any other utilities?

I've been hard core vim all-the-way for years, and with the right .vimrc I've found that its suitability to Perl development is excellent. I've been considering giving Padre a try, seeing today that it has a vi keybindings plugin. Do you use Padre?

I think I'm going to post a general request-for-wisdom on the topic, but I appreciate your opinion in particular given the usefulness I've enjoyed in your modules.

    I use SciTE. Padre uses the same text editing widget (Scintilla) as SciTE, but while Padre is a full IDE, SciTE is just a text editor.

    I do like Padre, but (on this machine at least) its start up time is a little too long for my liking. SciTE starts in a fraction of a second.

    I've previously posted My Perl Module Toolchain.

    perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'
