in reply to Re^2: Explaining source code
in thread Deriving meaning from source code, some code is self documenting

Without meaning to be rude , what are the chances a perl beginner ever escapes from their editor of choice? I had a bash w/ Padre on ubuntu 8.04 this weekend and stopped at the instruction to 'remove all Wx 2.6 from your system' - Not likely!

I can't believe it's not psellchecked

Installing padre

    I am not sure what was supposed to be rude in your comment.

    If you are asking how beginners will be able to install Padre, then there are several plans.

    One of them is that Padre will come with many linux distributions.

    e.g. It already comes with Fedora and Mandriva. The Debian group is working on adding it to their distro, from where it can easily get into Ubuntu.

    Separately we hope to renew the support of downloading stand-alone executable of Padre for linux.

    For Windows we have a stand alone Portable Strawberry Perl beta with Padre inside that you can download, unzip and start using Padre.

    Of course if you won't upgrade your OS, it might never work for you.
