in reply to IDE for windows with remote linux dev site...

I second the Komodo recommendation. Earlier versions had some challenges with staying connected to the remote server, but the latest one works great. I use it on windoze to edit remote files in Linux all the time. There is a Linux version too in case you want to edit directly from the Linux box.

Now if they could just get it to do remote debugging on Linux too...

    I have used Komodo since version 2.x, and I ugpraded to 3.5 and while it has been better than most stuff. The amount of improvements that have gone into new versions and the $300 price tag made me stop considering it for upgrades.

    The Linux version, for example, has problems when using hotkeys for commands. The syntax checking can be erratic and the remote access tools sucked. I know these are problems with 3.5, but they were problems in 2.x as well. I tried 4.0 Edit version, but then that had some of the same problems AND it was crippled(so you would purchase the Full version). I could pay $300 to get the complete features, but when I keep seeing the same problems with different versions, I am not really willing to shell out that kind of money.

      I used to be a Komodo tribesman and still use 3.5. However, with the change to 4.0 Active State dropped the "personal" price and really haven't provided any real incentive to upgrade. I've lost faith in them. Eventually I'll upgrade one of the pro versions we have at work in the hope that it is a little more stable debugging Perl and doesn't lose the plot after a modest number of files have been opened.

      There are a lot of things to like about Komodo, but there are a lot of rough edges - mostly in terms of bugs that really should have been fixed. I still tend to use it as my default editor for text files, even to the extent of copy and pasting between Visual Studio and Komodo so I can reformat comments in Komodo before pasting them back into Visual Studio (my main work environment).

      Sigh, maybe someone from Active State will listen and reinstate the personal price, but I doubt it. But if they do, I'll probably get the two work copies upgraded too.

      Perl reduces RSI - it saves typing
