Here is one from CPAN...

T-Pad

...its called T-Pad and is in pure Perl.

Reason I like it is mostly because it is pure Perl. I fought like hell to get Perl approved by the IT department where I work. I hadn't the energy to do the same bit over again for TextPad. But now that Perl is installed on all the PC's at work, now I have at least an editor aimed at Perl...and don't need any IT approval to run it. Hurrah!

Also because it is in pure Perl, I can actually add features. It took only minutes to add in a pull-down menu and add some handy Perl one-liners to run Perl Tidy, run pod2html, run PAR, copy *.pl as *.txt for downloading, etc. etc...

At home I run OptiPerl on Win32 and Nedit on NetBSD Unix. But at work I make do with T-Pad. It doesn't compare to OptiPerl, or even Nedit, but it sure beats the daylights out of Notepad, WordPad and their ilk.
