Emacs cperl-mode.  A perl mode built by perl programmers for perl
programmers.  And it works a hell of a lot better than any "IDE" I've ever
used.  I'll resist the urge to slander your editor sight unseen, but lets
just say I'm anxious to get a look at this paramount effort.

That is absolutely hideous.  What about "corporate entities" makes you
desire their embrace?  I'd prefer they stayed at arms length.  Pass the
cash through bullet-proof glass, that sort of thing.

Do you have a single shred of evidence of willfull deception?  Do you have
anything indicating that Sarathy even once declared that 5.6 would be
released totally stable and that CPAN would be instantly compatible?

I find these baseless claims rude and disrespectful to some people that I
hold in high esteem.
