Perl Editors?? Can't Post

Just starting to Learn Perl...
Not bad. I found a good book.

I just wanted to know if anyone can recommend a good Perl Editor?

I found PerlBuilder2.0 (but its $150!!)

Thanks!

Hi!

What do you want this editor to do, besides editing Perl scripts?
If it's just syntax highlighting you're looking for, I recommend Vim (if you're on the Unix side and don't care about additionally learning to use the editor) or UltraEdit (if you're on the PC side and aren't afraid to pay about $50). IMO Vim has the best syntax highlighting and it's free, but it's hard to get used to work with it. If you're an experienced Vim user, you can work reasonably faster than with any other editor. UltraEdit on the other side is very intuitive to use, offers nice syntax highlighting, and can be configured to run other programs, so you can e.g. execute your Perl scripts directly from within the editor.
I recommend these editors because I work with them regularly (and also work regularly with Perl). When I'm editing Perl scripts, I use Vim almost exclusively.
Perhaps there's someone else who can tell you about other editors that suit you better.

Hi again,

I forgot to mention that Vim is also available for PC's. (Actually, it's available for just about any operating system I can think of Wink. Ok, not for C64...)
