in reply to RFC: LSP for Perl

Yep, this is something on my radar too for a while now. FWIW there's already plsense (albeit haven't seen changes to it in a while,) so maybe a first shot at LSP would be to make plsense talk LSP?

I've added an issue to the plsense GitHub to try get things going.

    Is it really that simple?

    From my understanding does plsense.el rely heavily on cperl.el, at least for parsing the language.

    It's not clear for me how LSP expects this to be done, if it's really a "Server" then you'd need an external parsing entity, like PPI.

      It seems already here: Perl::LanguageServer.

      Note it uses Compiler::Lexer, not PPI, so it is definitely quite an early version to test the waters.

        Thanks, Compiler::Lexer sounds interesting, though there is practically no documentation what it does and how.


        a quick look into the code reveals that it's similar to PPI in trying to parse Perl code. :(

        IMHO running perl -c and analyzing the resulting op-tree would be safer...

    Looks like it could be a good starting point.
