I figured I should extend this thread rather than start a new one. I am having a similar perl IDE/Editor problem.
I am a notice perl programmer, and I dont need too much; currently I am using SlickEdit, its fast, responsive, and has good FTP integration (i.e. CTRL+S saves directly to the server).
However, I feel empty without dynamic syntax checking. I am a big Java guy, and used to IntelliJ, and all of its lovely features.
I have used Komodo, and it serves my purposes, except it is a bit too slow, and sluggish for me. Although it does have real time syntax checking
So if anyone knows of an editor/IDE (i dont really need any IDE features; debugging, refactoring, etc) that is lightweight, responsive, good FTP support and real time syntax checking, I would greatly appreciate it.
So here is what I am looking for
What OS are you using? If it's Windows, check out OptiPerl. It's fast, has a step though debugger (yay!) and has real-time syntax checking.
