in reply to Windows Text Editor for Perl

"visual", but not vi/emacs? What does visual mean here then? Anyway, you could look at editplus, which allows you to add menu-entries for running programs with the current file as an argument, and output the result into a debug window (attached to the editor) ..

(Of course, so does emacs... :)

    Vi stands for "Visual Interface" :-)

    The Introduction section of the Emacs Manual, which begins by listing the Attributes of the Anointed (or The Holy Buzzwords) reads:

    You are reading about GNU Emacs, the GNU incarnation of the advanced, self-documenting, customizable, extensible real-time display editor Emacs. (The `G' in `GNU' is not silent.)

    We say that Emacs is a "display" editor because normally the text being edited is visible on the screen and is updated automatically as you type your commands. *Note Display: Screen.


    Everything about the computer experience is visual, unless you're at a Braille terminal or on some sort of voice-driven interface. Troll? Second guess or flame - either way you fall for the bait.
