After Sam mentioning that vim handled %/ better than the other two, I've
have a solution to my problem.
However, out of the box, vim doesn't treat %/ as a variable. But it
doesn't treat it as the beginning of a regex either, so it is closer
than Padre or Notepad++.
But Sam's pointer to vim was great as it seems the learning curve for
customizing the syntax highlighting in vim is not nearly as steep (for
me at least) as I found Padre and Notepad++ to be.
To make vim treat %/ as a variable (tested on Ubuntu)
1. Create the directory ~/.vim/after/syntax
2. In that directory create a file called perl.vim
3. Put this line in the file
syn match perlVarSlash "%/"
And bingo. Vim will consider %/ to be a variable, like it does for $/
Many thanks to Sam for suggesting to use vim instead.
