Perl Editors - What is best? Can't Post

I'm thinking of writing many perl scripts in the future, so I really need a good perl editor. Can anyone tell me (if money were no object) which is best for offline development of perl scripts for the web?

What do you all use? And is it good?

I always like to upload my file.cgi / file.pl to my server and online edit it and start creating there, If I develope it on my win32 pat here at home, I'll just use WordPad because I haven't found an editor as good as the online one I use for offline use.

It's called Best FTP Explorer 2000 4th edition, just go to tucows.com and search for best ftp, you'll see it, it's very good, aside from a few minor things, I can hardly ever download over 400 files consecutively.

It has sytax highlights for the following langs,

HTML
C++
Pascal
perl
java
SQL
Tcl/Tk
AWK
DML
PHP
ASP

The most common ones.

Personally, I love UltraEdit and emacs (in that order).

You can download a demo version of UltraEdit at http://idmcomp.com/ and emacs for both linux and windows is available at at http://www.gnu.org

I use 1st Page 2000, which is comparable to HomeSite. You can grab it for free at http://www.evrsoft.com. The other editor I use, which is actually better for dealing with perlscripts (because the parser is more complex, therefore it colorizing text better) is CodeMagic Universal IDE. It cost around $130 US. Check it out at http://www.codemagiccd.com.

Since I work alot on the front end, HTML, JS and so on. I use Allaire Homesite, it has color coding for the most popular scripting languages, pluss many cool development features.
