I've been coding Perl in TextPad on Windows for the last few years. This is just an advanced text editor, certainly not something geared up for working with Perl. I was on ActiveState today and see that they now offer a free Perl IDE called Komodo Edit. I also came across http://open-perl-ide.sourceforge.net/
As you guys generally know what's what and the best of everything, I was wondering what you guys are using, what's free, what isn't and what's best.
I'm sure if I start using a good IDE then my coding speed will be improved.
Update: I now use Komodo IDE and Padre for all my Perl coding. I find Padre is ideal for the Learn Perl course that I run.
