in reply to Favorite Hacks in Emacs

I've seen this in a few places, so you are probably already aware of it:

;;run the current perl program (defun run-perl () (interactive "*") (setq perl-buffer-name buffer-file-name) (shell) (setq perl-run-command "perl ") (insert perl-run-command) (insert perl-buffer-name) ) (global-set-key [f7] 'run-perl)

But I have to say that I don't do many perl-specific things from within emacs. I'd rather jump over to a command window instead (somehow the green letters on black background mean "shell" to me a lot more than an emacs window, and black text on a white background means "write code here").
