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

Hello all

Everyone wants something for nothing. Please don't slam me to bad on this question.

The instructor of my class is looking for a freeware Perl IDE for Windoze. Does anyone no of such a beast? The class was using PerlBuilder demo for 30 days. I know perl has it's own debug mode, but we are talking about non-programmers who would have a hard time using "perl -d".


Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    Have a look at Komodo from ActiveState. It's a cross-platform IDE for scripting languages, including Perl, Python, and JavaScript. It's currently in development, but it is definitely usable on Windows.
      I actually downloaded this and used it. Not to bad, but its still a little kludgy. Another inconvenience is
      that you have to download ActiveState Python as well, to even use it. Hope you have a lot of disk space and
      memory, as its going to use a lot of both.

      In the end, there can be only one!
        What, the best IDE for doing Perl is not written in Perl, but rather in Python? That is ironic.

    Well, there are always the editors listed on the Outside Links node. Being a non-windows user, I can't recommend you one, but I'm sure there has been a similar discussion here before :)

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
