in reply to perl script editor you prefere?
I usually use Xemacs in cperl-mode on both Windogs and Unixes; syntax highlighting and intelligent indentation are the features I apreciate most.
Anyway, some versions of Xemacs get sometimes screwed up by character sequences that look like perl builtin variables (say: print "$person sometimes use$final_s the ".'$'."$name variable", stupid example but you get the idea...) or by quotes and double quotes in PODs; in those cases I tend to use gvim.
In particular, I use only gvim when editing XPathScript stylesheets, in ASP+Perl mode.
Just my two cents of Euro
