From Win to Lin: Perl IDE choices?by water (Deacon)

water has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Wise Monks --
I really really like and recommend Optiperl, a Windows-based Perl IDE.
I like Optiperl's code folding, the built-in regexp tester and perl-tidy, the syntax colorization, the easy click into modules, the real-time syntax and warnings checks, and more. Yep, I like Optiperl -- is a great tool.
For a variety of reasons, I may need to switch to a linux IDE for perl.
What do folks recommend? Is there such a thing?
I know the strengths and weaknesses of the general super-editors like vi and emacs. That's not what I'm after. (Not interested in the religious debates along the lines of "anything you want to do for anything can and thus should be done in emacs|vi; IDE's are just fancy dressing". I disagree -- though skilled in emacs, I can get work done much much faster in a specialized tool like Optiperl.)
I'm seeking something like Optiperl on Linux.
Does such a thing exist?
