Wow, i really like the debugging functions in it (and i am amazed by all the modules that are loaded "behind my back" (to say so)) -- when it works. This editor is a good perl learning tool... discovered quite a few interresting tricks playing with it for half an hour that i didnt knew about perl! (by reading those .pm sources)
Now, may be off-topic, this is just a note about editors -- i dont want to start a war about them. Actually i dont know an editor that really makes good perl syntax highlighting, only Active State Komodo does it well. Even with most of the japh!!! (cool, i used B::Deparse generally, now i can try to read them without) I also tried vim (btw, i love vim's perl mode), emacs... no good synhilight...!
Though The Aurora from ntext was my favourite editor for several years (since early '90s), i needed some more, sadly the developpers are probably dead...? So i made some searches and I came through two editors that you may wish to check:
UltraEdit: Quite easy, fast, practical, i miss some of The Aurora features, but it's a must-check for text editing/viewing/parsing. only for win
VEdit: YES, there is an editor that can match aurora, finally.... both on un*x and win
ok, it was just my two cents about editors....
Real Programmers dont need class,
They just have style...
