I second Anneq's suggestion to use CVS (I've heard good things about subversion too, but I have no personal experience with it).

Personally I can't seem to get used to EPIC, but Eclipse does have some really funky CVS integration. If you want something a little "lighter", try TortoiseCVS - it integrates into the win32 explorer, so it's easy to use and works well.

The CVS client/server model can help with deployment and it will make it a lot easier to have more than one developer working on a project, with each programmer having their own development sandbox. This means everyone can run his/her own server to test on and changes only get committed to the repository after they get tested on the developer's box.

I'd strongly recommend you set up a webserver for each developer on their own machine. You want to keep the write/run/debug cycle short, and time spend moving files about is time waisted. (Another possibility is to put the sandboxes on a shared directory on another machine, but remember that people will want to reconfigure the webserver and/or reboot the machine)

    Have you tried the latest version of EPIC (0.3.0)? There are some improvements that might help eliminate some of your problems with it. I've managed, through googling, to get Run working and the code templating and code completion features work excellently. You can bookmark lines of code and insert to do items right in your script. The latest version now includes some documentation that helps in figuring things out. Errors and warnings show up in the Problems tab and you can hover over errors/warnings to see an explanation. As well, you can highlight a word (for example a function) and it shows the perldoc page on it. A handy bar on the right of the code window show colored bars so that you can quickly scroll to errors (red), to do tags (blue), and bookmarks (green).

    OK, so I'm a big fan of EPIC and Eclipse. But for a lot of good reasons.

    I saw an Eclipse plugin for subversion but I haven't looked into it yet.
