in reply to Perl Programming Tools - (who, what, where, when, and why)

Just so the Mac Community gets a mention I use Barebones BBEdit. As Barebones themselves mention "BBEdit: It doesn't suck.®". Its the finest GUI editor I've used under any OS and has MacPerl facilities built in... I could waffle all day, but if using a Mac its well worth a look.

Anyhoo, that's when I'm using my Mac laptop, under *nix its either vi or emacs.

    I also use BBEdit for all of my Perl coding on my laptop, and I like it a great deal. It's definitely has an impressive set of customizations and options. One thing of note (to new users):, you will have to set your newline character to 'UNIX newline' before you write your code. Using the default newline char in BBEdit left my code full of ^M's when I checked it out in emacs. Overall though, the fact that you can choose which newline character (DOS/Windows, UNIX, or Macintosh) BBEdit defaults to is really neat and useful.

    ++ on BBEdit. Been my editor of choice for many years. The perl integration does, indeed, not suck.

    The new shell worksheets on the Mac OS X version are also very useful. I've got one setup to do SQL queries to my local dev database.

    If you've on a Mac and haven't tried it do so now :-)
