in reply to OT: Yet Another IDE Question (VS Code)

Can't say much about VSCode; I use either Emacs or Vim on all Windows and *nix platforms. I really should set up EVIL emulation in Emacs, but have just been too preoccupied to do it. Standard Vim has been good enough.

As long as the editor has syntax highlighting, I am fine. The Perl debugger can always be invoked from a command shell on Windows. Ideally, I would have the program text in one frame, and the CLI in another; I can get this set up easily in Emacs on *nix, but that doesn't seem to work as well on Windows.

It might not be worth it for you to learn one of these editors if you work mostly on Windows. If you have to do anything in .NET languages, it is generally advised to stick with Visual Studio, or I suppose VSCode in your case.

I picked the above editors as they are cross platform, stable, and will generally have a syntax checker for virtually all programming languages in use. I've even done a (very) small amount of C# using Vim. I understand it isn't ideal for larger projects with development teams, however.

    Installing evil via melpa ("emacs-Pan" ;) was pretty straightforward for me.

    You might also be interested in my 2016 talk "Emacs as Perl IDE" it lists most of the extended options.

    It's twice on YouTube I recommend the Yapc Cluj version over London PW. =)

    And all that was relevant ... how?

    The likelihood of someone used to Windows not running in terror upon the sight of Vim or Emacs are pretty slim and I can't see them using command line debugger either.

      For what it's worth, my first Emacs was on Windows. And so was my first Perl.

      If for whatever reasons you have no choice regarding the operating system, that combo can help getting your job done quite fine.

      Which proves you never used emacs on windows.

        You are right and I do not plan to.

        I don't doubt you can, but if you come from the Windows world, Emacs is fairly unlikely to be your choice.
