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

I am using the sublime text editor. Does anybody have a decent sublime build system file for Perl that they would be willing to share? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

    I ended up doing it myself: Change \packages\Perl\Perl.sublime-build file in the Sublime Text install to the following:
    { "cmd": ["perl", "-w", "$file"], "file_regex": ".* at (.*) line ([0-9]*)", "selector": "source.perl" }
      Works great -- thank you!!
      Tks! I 've changed "-w " to "-c" for syntax only.
      In which file exactly did you do the formatting, and where can I find it? Do you have to perform the changes before the installation of sublime text or is it possible to do it afterwards? Thank you!
        1. Click "Preferences -> Browse Packages"
        2. Navigate to the "Perl" subfolder
        3. Create a file called "Perl.sublime-build" with the following content:
          { "cmd": ["perl", "-w", "$file"], "file_regex": ".* at (.) line ([ +0-9])", "selector": "source.perl" }
        4. Manually set the build system by clicking "Tools -> Build System -> Perl"
        5. You can now run your Perl script by mashing Ctrl+B

    Go to "Tools -> Build System -> New Build System" This will open up a new file. Write the following in the file
    { "cmd": ["perl", "-w", "$file"], "file_regex": ".* at (.*) line ([0-9]*)", "selector": "source.perl" }
    Save the file as "perl.sublime-build" in "~/.config/sublime-text-3/Packages/User" folder
