Usually textpad on Windows and emacs on Linux. But I've just started trying out Komodo 2.0, and I am seriously considering starting to use an "IDE" (if Komodo can be called a such) for the first time in my life.
in reply to Perl Programming Tools - (who, what, where, when, and why)
Komodo 1.X when I tried it out sucked big hairy monkey... erm... ears, but now it seems to actually work, and it is the first time ever I've tried any such editor that actually not gets in your way more than it helps you. All other Perl specific editors slow you down (unless you are the author, possibly), but this one doesn't.
I'm buying the personal edition at the end of this month. Think it was like $30, which is close to nothing for a great tool. Only drawback is that it is based on Mozillas XUL system, which is bloated and slow (like Mozilla). In the long term, I suspect that basing it on Mozilla is actually a good thing though, if they just can get around to optimize the GUI rendererer sometime... :)
It also is available on Windows and Linux, which will make it really nice... no more switching back and forth.
You have moved into a dark place.
