\rs in vim with perl-support performs a compile check.  ctrl-x (alt-m)
h t does the same thing on my emacs setup with perlnow.  So not quite
live syntax checking, but allows you to code, compile check, then run,
all without leaving the editor.

Maybe we need to have another Perl editor / ide talk series.  Anyone
want to give a talk on their setup?
