Perl Programming/Editors and IDEs
Integrated Development Environments (IDEs)[edit | edit source]
If you feel up to it, you may want to try using an Integrated Development Environment (IDE). An IDE is a program that provides a workspace for writing and debugging programs. Some programmers find they are more productive with the assistance of an IDE. Using an IDE can also eliminate some of the pain of the command prompt, especially when one lacks experience with the established tools.
This book will make no assumptions about the IDE you are using beyond the capabilities of a basic text editor.
