in reply to Which text editor

"I was curious to find out what text editors others use when working on Perl code."

I really don't see why someone can be curious in the choice of text editor of others, besides starting a flame. I mean, does it really matters what editor people use? It's like wondering what kind of a pen a writer uses and what kind of paper. It doesn't matter, it's the story/book that counts.

If you're not happy with your current editor of choice, Super Search or Google around and try a few others till you're satisfied.

Even worse is too see this topic come back again and again ...

Besides all this ... Vim++ ;)

    Don't you think you're a bit presumptuous there?

      Oh most likely yes, and these nodes of mine probably end up in the negatives pretty high. I just don't understand why people don't start looking for information before asking a question. Usually we have Abigail-II responding in a manner like mine, but since he's awfully nice today, I'll question it :)

      I most certainly don't disagree with people asking questions, even obvious ones that have been asked before, but I value it when a person actually does look around before posting something. In this case, I don't think it's very hard to find numerous editor suggestion on almost every known OS.

      Maybe it's just me, but I couldn't care less about what editor other people use.

        I didn't dispute the fact that the OP should have gone looking first. I just think it's pretty belligerent to assume he must be trolling for a flame war.

    Just so you can sleep soundly at night, I asked the question after I had done a search for text editors in PerlMonks and found nothing specifically relevent.

    I also asked the question as I am very happy with my current editor of choice however new editors arise quietly in the night and only people like PerlMonks would be aware of them - especially in relation to coding in Perl.

    I can not explain why others have asked the question mind you :-)

    Oh.. and I have just discovered IndigoPerl as a result of this topic. Good things come in mysterious packages.
