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

I am new to perl and Linux. I work on a Red Hat 9.2 Machine. When I started I used to work with "gedit". But when gedit crashed and refused to come up, I discovered "kate". Now the thing about kate(K Advanced Text Editor), is that
  1. It does automatic colour highlighting of text.
  2. It indicates the corresponding parenthesis if you reach any one of the pair.
  3. There are even shortcuts to comment and uncomment multiple lines.
  4. There is also a file browser and shell prompt. So that you can execute your programs from within the application.

There maybe other qualities as well, but I am satisfied with the ones above.

    FYI, Emacs/XEmacs does all of that too. It also does a lot of other things, like auto-indentation, debugger integration, quick lookup of highlighted text in the perl man pages, etc. It's not easy to learn, but may be worth it if you plan to do a lot of coding on Linux.

[Corion]: Meh. I need to find myself a better "programming" feed than r/programming (which is just HackerNews reposts and advertisements, very little code). Maybe I should select a list of links that I liked on r/programming and then google for ...
[Corion]: ... an aggregator site that also listed (ideally) all of these links once. And maybe also have an exclude list to blacklist some of the most spammy links that the site may have never mentioned at all
[marto]: I gave up reading HN at all, and feel much better for it :P
[Corion]: Now, how to best automate that Google search ... :-)
[Corion]: marto: Yeah, I'm also short of not reading it at all. I already stopped reading it in the morning because it gave me a foul mood.
[Corion]: The good posts on HN are the non-computing posts. Most of the other stuff is maybe relevant to you if you are 20 and live in Silicon Valley...
[Corion]: Two attributes that don't describe me.
[Corion]: Maybe I should also write a curator for HN or simply not read it anymore, like you do.
