quasar has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:


New to Perl, but am an experienced programmer. I like to use an IDE as it helps me to get things right quicker. I have tried Dzsoft and Perl Express. The problem is that when I go to check things into ClearCase, there are always extra characters\whitespaces\etc, that are unacceptable.

Is there an editor that does not do this, am I missing some kind of seting in options, etc., etc? Am I stuck with notepad, etc? A free editor would of course be better, but not necessary. Thanks
