I have almost the same versions.
I see breakage that seems to be caused by mis-parses of string termination... not vim-bad... but still broken ;)
Could you post that screenshot somewhere so that I may compare it?
Update: Is it possible that I've mis-configured something and it's falling back to perl-mode ?
I'll be the first to admit I'm not an emacs expert. Only really been using it for 3 months (to play with lisp and slime).
I'm much more comfortable in vim (even with its really weak syntax-highlighting). I've been using it for 10+ years so it's just what I'm used to i guess. My fingers are still not used to hitting the control/alt-keys so much.
Latest ntemacs and latest cperl-mode (+ actually following instructions) seems quite fine.
Thanks grep, for making me check my facts!
