Main thing about Perl is that the syntax is so
flexable -- including Filter::Simple items like
Yada::Yada::Yada or Inline -- that none of the 
IDE's really does a good job of dealing with the
code: they were all adapted from C which has a 
much more rigid structure.

I use vile (xvile) for most things: there is a 
highlighter that I can turn off easily when not
searching for syntax bugs and it handles multiple
buffers gracefully. The extension language is 
perl, which helps (vs. lisp in emacs).
