    padre is the perl ide, in perl personally i use geany, it has highlighting, code folding and symbol indexes - which is all i really make use of. i like some of the more advanced features of padre but it runs slowly on my amd-fusion laptop.

    It would help if you mentioned your OS and maybe what you've used and what else you would like to do with it. Usually it boils down to vim or Emacs, these two are also the ones available on the most platforms.

    Can you explain/define what means good text editor ? :)

      Good means perfect or more suitable for development of an app using catalyst perl.

      It's all up to the one who suggest it. I here assumed good as the easy to code,more programmer friendly text editor.
        Buy Komodo!

    Since you're requirements are vague, I suggest you actually try a few editors and pick one which you like.

    An editor is a tool, and like many other tools, what fits me may not fit you.

    I personally use emacs, but I have also used it for over 20 years, and so my configuration is well worn, fits well into my hands, and responds the way I expect it to. I am able to use vi/vim to do many things, but it does not have that same comfortable feel that emacs does.

    I would recommend that you try out some tools and find out what works for you. There are some good suggestions (other than perhaps notepad :-b ) in this thread. Look at their documentation. See if they are easily configurable. See if they provide utilities to make some of the tedious work automatic. Search and replace? With regular expressions? Macros? Whitespace configuration? Compile while typing? Spell checking? Boilerplate code? Running test suites? Refactoring utilities? Can you add an extension yourself? Unicode? There are many tools that an editor can offer. How they hook into the system can be comfortable for one and unacceptable for another.

    Some tools are also complex, and in the hands of an inexperienced craftsman may feel clunky and over-featured. Once experience is gained, a feature that may have felt extraneous becomes well used. Learning an editor (or a set of editors) is an investment that may take some time, but will pay off in the long run.

    ... whereas I left “24x80” behind a very long time ago.   It is extremely a personal preference.   There are plenty of “programmer’s editors” to choose from on all platforms.   Lately, I use Eclipse ... and curse it frequently.   I have used a great many.

    I use emacs and notepad++. They both work fine.
