Instead of just having those mappings for !perl and !prove, there are actual compiler plugins for both.

The main benefit of this is that vim will automatically parse any warnings and errors and jump to the correct location in the file. You can then jump to the next or previous error/warning with :cn and :cp or just list all the errors with :cl.
