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

Does anyone know of a good free Perl RAD (Linux, widows too if possible).
I mean something like Delphi(Kylix) rad-tool so that u can easly (drag&drop) build simple GUI apps...
Probably via TK !!?! or somthing else ...

    I'm not aware of such a Perl IDE, that would provide both the GUI design and the code editing functionnality :(

    On one hand you have code editing tools like Komodo that allows you to "easily" edit/debug Perl projects (there is even a VisualPerl plugin for MS VisualStudio). All the Perl IDE I found with Google are just code editors without UI design support.

    On the other hand you have Glade that allows you to design your Gtk UI interface and generate the corresponding Perl source code, then you fill the callback functions with your favorite editor ...

    In fact, Perl standard and default UI seems to be STDIN and STDOUT ... that's why there is no RAD tools for Perl :)))

    I don't think they offer a completely free download but a 'free' trial version is available:

    You might also want to look at ActiveState's Visual Perl:

    I would also look on SourceForge for related projects. They offer quite a bit of good stuff.
    Hope this helps,

    I'm not sure of something specifically like what you're describing, but as a general IDE, I *love* Perl Builder.

    I've been using it for a good 3 or 4 years now, and I consider it an essential tool for heavy duty stuff I'm working on. It's pricey, but to me it's worth it. You can get a free 14 day trial to see if you like it.

    There are a few other IDE's available, some of them free, but I've yet to find another that feels right to me.
