You should give xvile (or ordinary console vile) a try. Its perl
syntax highlighting is pretty good. See http://vile.cx/
Better still it can be built to use perl as an extension language.
I've written a number of scripts to extend the capability of this
already amazing editor. (Most of the scripts that I've written
are included with the source distribution.)
