in reply to Perl Development Environment - Revisited

Seems that my choice is somewhat at odds with most here. But then I work almost exclusively in Windows using Tk. After trying many alternatives I finally settled on ActiveState's Komodo and their companion PDK. Although in the past I have used Eclipse, I found it became very slow when handling large files. Komodo remains responsive and allows me to bundle everything I use into one place - particualrly as I package applications with PerlApp and use PerlTray to create tray apps.

As for secret weapon? Nope, just what works!

    Komodo remains responsive

    I tried Komodo, but found it to be just a little less responsive than I liked. I think it's a great IDE, and they've got very smart people working on it, but my guess is that the single largest complaint they get about it is speed.

    I've read it's written using some Mozilla-related thing called XUL, though I'm not familiar with XUL. I figure this was done to make Komodo cross-platform. Makes me wonder if ActiveState could've successfully built it using GTK or Qt, or if it would've taken far to long to implement in C or C++...
