Go to www.perl.com, and click on the "Improving Perl's Tools"
graphic in the upper left corner, for an interesting article. The
author feels that one reason that Java is eating Perl's lunch in
the enterprise is that Perl's development tools, which for most
JAPHs are simply vi or emacs and PerlTidy, are many years behind
Java's. He talks about ECLIPSE, and other IDEs, that could be
enhanced to close this gap. It's a well written and extensively
researched article, so check it out!
