I don't think tchrist has any tools for editing perl code w/ vi, but he
has the vi/pdb interface:


I haven't had a chance to check it out yet, so I don't know how useful
it is...

Also, if you're going to give vi a test drive, try vim.  You can compile
it with an embedded perl interpreter, so you can use perl regexes for
substitutions and it also comes with a neat OO package that allows you
to manipulate editor buffers using perl.  I'm going on vacation on
Friday, and one of the things I want to do is create some cool commands
for the vim perl extension.  If I ever get around to doing it, I'll
forward a url to the list once I get back into town...

          people see you as somewhat of an ogre.
