Strawberry + Padre - is this real?

twostime has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello lovely mungers,

I read this thread. I'm returning to Perl for an easy solution to an important problem (child safety system) . I took advice and noted Strawberry Perl was ok, latest install is this month and SHA1 is good! Got to be a worthwhile endeavour.

I installed said varient and read their readme.txt. I'm keen on a helpful IDE so used their readme to install Padre.

OMG - that is the most painful and frightening installation i've ever seen. I have no idea what I have done to my new PC. So many warnings and some fails. test summary:

Test Summary Report ------------------- t/10_cleanup.t (Wstat: 512 Tests: 2 Failed: 0) Non-zero exit status: 2 t/11_cleanup.t (Wstat: 512 Tests: 4 Failed: 0) Non-zero exit status: 2 Files=25, Tests=533, 5 wallclock secs ( 0.08 usr + 0.06 sys = 0.14 +CPU) Result: FAIL Failed 2/25 test programs. 0/533 subtests failed. gmake: *** [Makefile:784: test_dynamic] Error 255 ADAMK/ORLite-1.98.tar.gz C:\STRAWB~1\c\bin\gmake.exe test -- NOT OK //hint// to see the cpan-testers results for installing this module, t +ry: reports ADAMK/ORLite-1.98.tar.gz Stopping: 'install' failed for 'ORLite'. C:\Strawberry>

I'm keen to know whether this is a usual deployment, if I need to worry (have no full log but can share what I captured at the end). I thought PERL was a living language. I do not believe the Monks have all past on due to C19 :) love a little help here, v basic reqs. Ta. (Sorry can't cope with dictatorial formatting - the help wasn't very - i'll try harder next time)

    Perl is still kicking, but Padre is kind of out of date. If you aren't into vim or emacs (for whom MSWin versions exist) you can try Komodo from ActiveState or IntelliJ IDEA with its Camelcade plugin. Atom should work as well.

    map{substr$_->[0],$_->[1]||0,1}[\*||{},3],[[]],[ref qr-1,-,-1],[{}],[sub{}^*ARGV,3]

      I can recommend Komodo IDE, especially as it is now free (after going though some minor hoops).

      Optimising for fewest key strokes only makes sense transmitting to Pluto or beyond
      That has nothing to do with the error message

    Did you carry on with Strawberry Perl and Padre twostime?
    If so, how did it go?

    I use Strawberry Perl and I'm looking for an IDE to replace TextPad that I currently use. I am drawn towards Padre as it is written in Perl although I'm not exactly sure why that should make any difference to my decision - but hey, since when have decisions had to be logical?

    The contenders are:

    I know EMACS has been suggested as well but this seems like *NIX tool that has been ported for Windows rather then something developed either for Windows or as a cross-platform application.
