radiantmatrix asks the following loaded question on perlmonks, "I'm still left with a question: What's a good editor, with a consistent interface, that works across all those platforms?"  If you are fan of text editors, please read the entire thread.  I've posted some of the links below.

  1. Vim for Perl developers
    "First of all, this document is for people who are already using Vim for their programming tasks. Those people who feel that there is something missing in Vim should definitely read this document. People who recently stopped using Vim due to the reason that something was not there should also read this document."
  2. Komodo 3.0 Review
    "ActiveState Komodo is the award-winning, professional integrated development environment (IDE) for dynamic languages, providing a powerful workspace for editing, debugging and testing your programs. Komodo offers advanced support for Perl, PHP, Python, Tcl and XSLT, and runs on Linux, Solaris and Windows."
  3. SciTE
    "SciTE is a SCIntilla based Text Editor. Originally built to demonstrate Scintilla, it has grown to be a generally useful editor with facilities for building and running programs. It is best used for jobs with simple configurations - I use it for building test and demonstration programs as well as SciTE and Scintilla, themselves."
  4. jEdit
    " jEdit is a mature and well-designed programmer's text editor that has been in development for over 5 years.
