My 2 ˘: Two questions, two answers. 1.: Strawberry portable. 2.: There is no really good Perl IDE. Notepad should be good enough for a beginner on M$-Dog. Else Notepad++

    GNU Emacs does have a Windows port (and a bit of a learning curve) but Emacs' CPerl mode is still the best development aid for Perl that I have seen. The other upside is that Emacs also runs on real operating systems, so learning to use it on Windows is a skill that stays useful. :-)

      Yes, sure. I used it for decades on Linux, Windows and Mac. Unfortunately it disappeared on the Mac with the last update. And unfortunately my beloved Elisp macros disappeared as well. Holy Joe! Now I have to mess around with this plague called Aquamacs. BTW, my last resort for real operating systems was zile. I always had a compiled version at hand for copying to ~/bin on boxes that only had this other plague known as vi.
