in reply to Perl Development Tools

FTE - although we're looking at a ground-up rewrite. That should be fun ;-)

Free. Syntax hilighting (which is also fun... parsing perl without being perl...). Auto indent. Incremental search (I think - I'm not 100% sure what that means). Bracket matching. Folding (that's what the 'F' stands for). Linux, Solaris, Mac OS X (not tried that last one myself), Windows, (OS/2, AIX, HP, ...). PHP, Python, HTML, (C, IPF, Ada, REXX, Make, Diff, Shell, Pascal, Java, Tex, 4GL, ...).

And most of the changes I've made to it in the last couple of years was perl syntax hilighting. Wow that has been painful. ;-)

Update: Given ysth's interpretation, then, no, fte doesn't really have incremental search. At least, not that I've found ;-)

    I think "incremental search" means you start typing a search string and it matches as much as possible after every character you type. So in this message, typing "t" would jump to "think", adding "y" would jump to the first "typing", adding "p" would stay there, adding "e" would jump to the first "type".
