in reply to Any free perl editors?

I use Context on Windows. It has syntax highligting for a lot of languages/markups and has some nice printing options. You can also configure the function keys to run any command. For example, if I'm editing a Perl script and hit F9, it runs it. If I'm editing an HTML file and press F9, it opens a browser window with the file. Hope this helps.

    Another vote for Context here, since it works great as a straight text editor as well as a syntax highlighter.

    For example, it lets me highlight a column of text and specify a character to fill the block with.

    Fans of the old QEdit program (aka TSE / TSE jr) need look no further.
