Perl editors
Message ID:
Hi folks,

I'm currently using a mixture of Quanta[1], jEdit[2] and Kate[3] (all Linux)
for my Perl editing needs, but I'm wondering if there are any specialised
editors(preferably free) which others are using.

In my ideal world I'd like an editor that is not console/terminal based,
(I prefer GTK, etc. applications) allows one to test subroutines out
with dummy values, or just execute single subroutines. Debugging and
stepping (I think its called 'stepping'; you set two markers and the code
only executes between the markers...) would also be beneficial. I bet I'm
asking for the earth! ;-)

Any suggestions? If this is off topic and is likely to generate a lot of
list-unworthy messages like: "I use x", "I use y" then please feel free to
mail me off list.
