in reply to Opening a block device in Windows

If you really want direct access to the raw device, like /dev/sdx under unixish/linuxish systems, you can open \\.\F: (permissions provided), potentially using CreateFile() via Win32::API. Also see this MSDN article on direct drive access, espcecially if you don't have a drive letter yet.

[ambrus]: I have to tolerate syntax highlighters when other people use them, but I don't use them myself. And sorry for the rant.
[GotToBTru]: I appreciate the ability to highlight matching brackets/ parentheses/ braces, both for my own code and the inconsistently indented code of others
[Corion]: I like editors that automatically highlight the matching parenthesis (like % in vi), but that's roughly the extent to which I like editor support ;)
[GotToBTru]: same here Corion.
[Corion]: I tried for a short time (well, 8 hours now) to get Perl::Tidy set up but then found that it doesn't support (new-style) signatures and then stopped again ;))
[GotToBTru]: changing the font color of the rest of the document just because I typed a single quote character is annoying
