Can you suggest some good perl IDE's ? maybe some ide's that wrap a perl debugger in a nice windowed interface :)?

    On any platform ... you could try the Activestate Komodo IDE
    Komodo IDE
    If you are looking for something free on MSs Windows.. try the Open Perl IDE
    Open Perl IDE
    Haven't tried it .. but i've heard pretty decent reviews of Perl Express as well...
    Update: added platform info

    Take a look at ptkdb. Its a pretty good Tk based debugger interface. You invoke your script like this:

    perl -d:ptkdb

    It's a bit quicker to pick up than the normal debugger. But even that isn't as hard as it seems at first.

      I find EPIC to be terrific. The editor is more powerful and flexible than Komodo (for what I've used of Komodo) and also more stable and faster. The debugger seems to be almost as good as Komodo's. Integrated perltidy is very handy, the integrated percritic would be nice if I could get it to work, and I find the refactoring tools useful.

    I'm using Komodo from ActiveState mainly because of its excellent debugger interface. The software costs money, but well worth it (if you work for a company that pays the bill).

    In addition to those already mentioned, IIRC, I have used emacs's (is that proper?) debugger interface, although it was in my undergraduate days (10-15 years ago).
