    Default new perlee...

    OK, so I have to learn perl. I would really like a nice IDE to work in - I only need three things, syntax highlighting (which most KDE editors already seem to support) and a button to click to run the script and show a console output, and a way to set run breakpoints (for debugging). Is there any simple perl friendly IDE that will do these things? Saving files then running them is really hard on my debugging skills!

    Thank You!

    Hi
    err try man perldebug
    Code:
    perl -d your_perl_app
    You can set break points etc.....

    Not sure about an IDE, I use medit, but I would guess there are plugins
    for the kde editors.

    The IDEs that I see mentioned are Eclipse + EPIC
    <http://www.epic-ide.org/> and Padre <http://padre.perlide.org/> but I
    haven't used either of them.

    I just use vim and the perl debugger, and Data:umper and the various
    trace flags in particular modules etc etc

    I'll check out Padre - I tried eclipse a few times elsewhere and it's just so complicated to set up - you don't know when you've found a bug vs just being lame. I think perldebug will likely do it for me. Thanks Again!!!! And thanks for mentioning xvidcap (on a different thread).
