    I am enjoying a new monospaced font for coding my Perl using Textpad in Windows; it's called Camingo and it's available for free at myfonts.com, where you can see a demo. It has a very clear distinction between "1" and"l", a slashed zero, and a clean look I find very pleasing. The designer/publisher -- Jan Fromm -- calls it a "type family for programmers." I think they'd be OK with my pasting in this excerpt from its description:
    A compact appearance and a moderate line height provide for good legibility and make writing code a pleasure. It is based on CamingoMono, but has several specially-drawn glyphs that work well at small sizes, including Q, l, &, *, ~ and #. The stroke weights are relatively light, which makes CamingoCode suitable for both bright and dark visual themes.

    Lookie -- I had never seen this before --

    The Script Center Script Repository: Sample Perl Scripts

    "The Script Repository categorizes the best sample scripts designed to run on Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003. The categories listed below connect you to sample scripts written using Perl for Windows." [See http://www.microsoft.com/technet/scriptcenter/scripts/perl/default.mspx.]

    [On another page, Microsoft recommends use of the ActiveState Perl distribution.]

    "And if you’d like to see all the Perl scripts, without having to click through all the categories, then visit the Master Index page for Perl scripts" [which is at] http://www.microsoft.com/technet/scriptcenter/scripts/perl/prlindex.mspx
