in thread Features missing in perl IDEs?

There are some pretty nice Lisp IDEs out there. All other things being equal (although rarely are they, of course) I'd probably rather work in Lispworks than, say, Emacs+SLIME+CMUCL for example. A lot of people like the Allegro CL IDE as well. While certainly not necessary, there's still a lot to be said for having well integrated inspectors, browsers, debuggers, and so forth, even for Lisp. And I'd think it'd actually be easier (quite a bit easier, actually) to make a decent Lisp IDE than one for something like C++.

    The Lisp machine was mentioned as an IDE on the list by perrin. My response to that was the programmer is redefining the Lisp machine, which means you're developing your perfect language and the perfect editor to go with it. Now, if you could do something like that with Perl, I'd be all ears.

    • In general, if you think something isn't in Perl, try it out, because it usually is. :-)
    • "What is the sound of Perl? Is it not the sound of a wall that people have stopped banging their heads against?"
      That actually wasn't me. I wish I could say I know Lisp, but I don't.

[marto]: yep :)
[Discipulus]: being her marto, can you explain what "Par for the course I'm afraid." means?
Discipulus here..
[marto]: "what is normal or expected in any given circumstances."
[marto]: better: "If a type of behaviour, event, or situation is par for the course, it is not good but it is normal or as you would expect"
[Discipulus]: thanks i was unable to decide where to split the sentece
[marto]: FWIW search.cpan rarely has issues, see http://noc.perl. org for a route to report problems
[oakbox]: thanks, marto.
[marto]: there was a period where search.cpan had some frequent outages for (IIRC) a couple of weeks. I've not had any problems since, until today.
[marto]: this was about 16 months ago maybe. the noc team are, in my experience, very responsive to reports of issues, so please raise the issue after checking known problems/outages
