in reply to [EMACS] "Emacs as Perl IDE" - Abstract for YAPC::EU 2016

Haven't logged in for ages, until now just to express approval for this talk!

You might want to look into other tools, such as perltidy.el to use Perl::Tidy under emacs; also, if you're using the Helm incremental completion framework, helm-perldoc.el is very useful for perldoc lookup.

Beyond Perl support, also check out Magit for an Emacs Git UI, and Projectile for project management.
