Howdy!

I used to use Context until it started displaying weird behavior. It would pop up weird messages that gave the impression of a viral infection. Lately, I've started using Notepad++ along side of Nedit under Unix and Cygwin.

    Well, I've never had problems with ConTEXT on Windows, so I give it the thumbs up.

    You can assign F9-F12 to whatever you like: Running perl programs with or without "-c" or "-d:ptkdb", as the previous poster said. And you can assign "hot-key" macros to print out bits of code you type often ("use strict/warnings;" or to provide a module template*).

    ConTEXT works with plenty of languages too, so will highlight your C/HTML/Python/SQL/CSS files nicely too. It's nice and fast, I always feel as if IDEs for perl (tried Komodo, Oasis, and several others a while ago) are slowing me down but maybe I have to look at them again (it's been a while since I looked).

    I didn't find all these things in Notepad++. Zeus looks interesting though, has some IDE-like things that ConTEXT doesn't have, lists of classes files, a workspace window.

    * and yes I know module-starter and h2xs will do that on the command line ..:)

      Zeus looks interesting though, has some IDE-like things that ConTEXT doesn't have, lists of classes files, a workspace window.
      Zeus also has a Quick Help feature which lets you integrate the CHM documentation directly into the editor (i.e. Perl documentation keyword help lookup from within the editor).

      More details here: http://www.zeusedit.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2529

        In my usage Komodo is better.
        check below for its features.

    Interesting. I've used it on both WinXP and Vista but never seen that behavior. But I'll definitely be watching now.

    Did you have the latest version?


    Revolution. Today, 3 O'Clock. Meet behind the monkey bars.

    I would love to change the world, but they won't give me the source code
