Free Perl IDE for a begginerby karpatov (Beadle)
|on Jan 12, 2008 at 11:20 UTC||Need Help??|
karpatov has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am a biologist forced to do some programming (I have some experience with R and VBA) and only recently decided to learn some Perl (for a db dump parsing before loading to R). Moreover I am aware there are GOperl and Bioperl as powerful interfaces to biological dbs as well, so I am thinking about learning some more perl.
Because I am fighting with the language a lot (= my simple programs do something else I would like them to do) I would like to ask for recommendation of a free IDE. Is there some generally preferred by the community?.
I need interactive debugger with a possibility to set a WATCH on a variable that is updated on every line (like the debugger of VBA can do). Indentation would be nice to :-).
Tx for your guidance.
