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

Hi,
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.
