I won't participate in a religious argument about it, but just to
uphold the honor of the clan:

Xemacs and emacs both have interactive tutorials under their "Help"
menus, should you wish to familiarize yourself.  I'm personally more
productive in emacs-land than vi-land, and could lend some advice
(both general and perl-related).

I also endorse Komodo for the upcoming novice.
