Sorry for the cutnpaste and the lack of links - I'm in an impoverished
access situation. Oh, and sorry for the forward of AS Komodo announce - it
just happened along as you asked. I use vi and vim when I'm lucky. I'd like
to try Eclipse but I'm on page 123 of the Manning Eclipse in Action (for
about a year now) so ... I imagine all the names are googlable, though. I
once had a beta tester's version of komodo but I could not make hide nor
hair of it, though that was long ago. AS is a pretty responsive group, I
gather, from the AS perl lists so that's helpfule
Perl Editors
Me, I use

vim (www.vim.org)

both winx and unix.



perl Builder


(both pay and 'limited' free version)


PerlWiz IDE


- A Perl/Tk GUI builder in pure Perl/Tk.

There's a free

Open Perl IDE:

and 3 someone else (Rich Mellor) has recommended:

WinPerl (actually, this looks old/no good)

DzSoft's Perl Editor (shareware):



... freeware and works great!

Crimson Editor

(FreeWare) on Windows

HTML-Kit (see at


) It looks like the best of both worlds: handy-handsome and with a
large comunity of contributions that build simple but effective
scripts. There is also the perl tag and a special HTML::Template one to
ease more the use of this great module.
To end , I must mention that it has a licenced version with some
addings and the most used one: FREE! :-)

 Pawel "du4mi" suggests:

Visual Perl Editor

Perl Studio


Mastak Absolute Perl (rus)

Perl Live  (rus)
