I use Vim for most things, but have spent some time using Komodo. Komodo is nice, but a bit of a resource hog. I really like its built-in regex building/debugging capabilities.

I continue to use Vim for most development tasks (not just Perl). It has the power that I'm looking for, along with allowing me to work in an efficient way.
