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

I added the following to my .vimrc noremap <F4> <ESC>:make<C-M>
and the following, among others, to .vim/ftplugin/perl.vim setlocal makeprg=perl\ -Mstrict\ -wc\ %
Now hitting F4 gets me a syntax check. In fact I've added a handful of other lines, so that F5 gives me a new window with clickable error messages that put the cursor on the line in question, and Ctrl-PageUp/Dn moves me from error to error as well. And once you master effective use of the ex command and the visual block mode, text almost edits itself.

Makeshifts last the longest.

[Corion]: marto: Oh, I'm jealous. I'm going to see DM in Frankfurt, but it's a stadium full of people, so, rather a big thing where you mostly get to see the band on screens ;)
[marto]: yes, the last time I saw them was in Berlin a few years ago, at the old Olympic stadium
[marto]: After Sunday I don't think I'll go see them again :)
[LanX]: Corion: come on, people are people! ;)
[Corion]: Naah, I think it's still an OK show so far. Their new songs aren't exactly great, but I'm not going there for new material anyway ;)
[marto]: I got the feeling from the last show that for big sections of it, they were not really into what they were doing
[Corion]: LanX: Sure, they can bask in my Halo
[marto]: more so than the previous show I saw
[Corion]: marto: Well, I think they go a tour every two years and I think it's hard to even get a connection with the crowd at a 20k people concert... But maybe after this time I'll stop too ;)
[Corion]: I still have to see the Pet Shop Boys live before they stop touring at all
