in reply to Error with Padre at ActivePerl

I was a Windows programmer for years using ActiveState, then Strawberry Perl, then I totally switched to using Linux (OpenSUSE) for writing code in Perl. I mention this because I gradually weaned myself away from always thinking that I needed a GUI.

"...GUI where I can see the Perl program variables..." You don't need a GUI to see program variables:

perl -d ... Loading DB routines from version 1.3 Editor support available. Enter h or `h h' for help, or `man perldebug' for more help. main::( my $limit = 100_000_000; DB<1> n main::( my $zip_file = ""; DB<1> p $limit 100000000 DB<2>
Sure, with a GUI you can have a pretty list of variables with expandable sections, etc., but the point I'm trying to make is that you shouldn't need them to see variable values.

zentara...oO 1 more reason I prefer Perl to Python is I can't believe how long Python takes to compile, and you can't disable the myriad of tests
[LanX]: so that's where you've been the last two years? Compiling Python?
[zentara]: LanX no! I was learning why Krishna made me into a unicorn. :-)
