I've been using the perltidy macro in Perlnow and have been really happy 
with it - http://obsidianrook.com/perlnow/emacs_as_perl_ide.html#perltidy
(note shameless plug of Joe's emacs ide, which I've been quite happy with)

One other killer feature I've found that I can't live without is 
auto-complete.  There's a vim autocomplete feature in the vim scripts 
archive, but I've been in emacs mode lately and managed to hack in 
autocomplete (well, more like hack in someone else's solution to my .emacs 
file :) ) - http://use.perl.org/~Phred/journal/32324
