You could probably do this with FTE. I currently use it as my main editor, and I've used the folding functionality before, which I think could be adapted for your purposes.

    I have to agree with infoninja because right now I am quite enthusiatic about FTE, having recently found it (upon the suggestion of a fellow Perl Monk). With FTE, you can have it "fold" at your Perl sub statements, at locations specified by a regex, or at isolated specified locations.

    Take a little time to figure out how to customize your configuration, and you can set the folding and unfolding to occur by keystroke, function key, and/or popup menu. And you might want to change the colors/fonts also....I wasn't comfortable with the default install.

    I guess FTE is known only by word-of-mouth....sourceforge and other app sites don't even have a description of FTE...

      I took a look at it, but couldn't find the folding features anywhere. I sifted through the docs for a bit, and saw "skipped" by the folding stuff. It looks like, at least for now, folding isn't supported on the Win32 build of FTE. (which is what I'm stuck with at work) It's something to keep an eye on, though.

      I'm too sexy for my .sig.
