fletcher_the_dog has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I recently got perlce working on my Dell Axim handheld. I have written a couple scripts on it, but I find writing the scripts kind of a pain. I find my self using very short variable and sub names to avoid typing. I was wondering if anyone new of a nice text editor for PocketPC that had customizable word completion or even better updated the word completion according to the variables and functions names that it sees in a file. It would be nice too if there was an editor with code highlighting. I have googled some but haven't found anything that really works.
Anyone have any experience with this?

    Vim, which has a a VimCE port, can do that. Yu have to ask for the completion explicitly using Ctrl-N/Ctrl-P, though.
