in reply to IDE for perl
Welcome to PerlMonks!
Many people have asked this question before. Doing a Super Search, I found these nodes:
However, if you are just starting with Perl, I would recommend you to start without an IDE. You could use something like Kate and run your code in the terminal inside the editor's window. Once you have covered the basics, you could switch to an IDE such as Eclipse, following GrandFather's recommendation.
In any case, these are just my 2 cents
