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

Maybe I'm just odd, but most of my coding is done in FTE (http://fte.sourceforge.net/). It's fast, lenient, textmode, and offers just about everything I need -- which, admittedly, isn't much. Some decent syntax-highlighting (still with errors, it especially likes to munge HERE docs), CVS integration, and just the "feeling" I like.
Of course, I may be influenced by my strong liking of the Turbo Pascal 6 / Borland Pascal 7 IDEs.

If FTE is not avaiable, mcedit does a nice job for quick editing of small scripts as well (though it breaks apart completely if you have more than one or two sourcefiles).

vim, emacs, etc. are nice editors, though I never really need all their power.

    I enjoy coding in Komodo. It is kind of resource hoggish (in much the same way that your run-of-the-mill C++ compiler is), but that isn't a terrible problem. If I do a moderately sized project, I almost always use komodo, as I find it helps me keep track of what I'm writing with better ease than notepad.

    As well, I like the fact that it resembles compilers I have used in the past, (MetroWorks Codewarrior for example), and I just like that feel to programming.

    So I would probably say my vote goes in for Komodo.

    work it harder make it better do it faster makes us stronger more than ever hour after our work is never over.
