" perl editor..." ???

"best" is what works well for you.

Now, I'm prejudiced. I was a big-spender (v 4.95, US$20 then; v5.2, US$30 now) and went for the "pro" version...and I'm also staying in (loose) touch with their folks, from whom came the news that they'll soon (for some unknown value of "soon") upgrade NoteTab's current (PCRE version 7) regex support to a full Perl version.

NoteTab already offers a great set of "clips" (plugins/modules/libs, if you prefer one of those labels), including one that will give you syntax highlighting. It's lightweight and quick.

So would I recommend anything different? No, not unless an integrated debugger is critical.

You have quite a list of choices in responses above this node, but FWIW, remember, for some time at least, changing editors will involve climbing the learning curve, so "best for you" may still be what you're already familiar with.
