It has perl2exe which is nice if you're making little utilities you want to be able to 
distribute to others without perl. It also has a killer regex debugger, and the IDE has 
all the normal stuff you'd like to see like autocomplete, project management, etc. 
Having said all that though, I still prefer good ol vim, but I think that's just cuz I'm 
an old school hacker.
