in reply to which perl ide should i use ... or how to setup emacs for perl dev

I used to be an emacs user, but I switched to vim quite a while ago; in fact now I can barley manage to get around in emacs if I start it up.

Of course, vim by itself, while nice, doesn't meet all my needs. I also make use of grep to search through whatever project I'm working on, and sed and awk/gawk to make changes across multiple files.

I've been meaning to try padre, but there were some dependency issues when I tried to install and I haven't gotten around to figuring things out.
