Scintilla

[ #12435 ]

Cool tool of the day: Scintilla. It's a free source code editing component.

Cool module of the day: Win32::GUI::Scintilla. The same as a Win32::GUI control, wrapper made by Laurent Rocher.

I just replaced the source viewer in Perl Oasis with a Scintilla control and it looks great! Perl syntax highlighting without the effort.

  • The Scintilla based editor, SciTe is great. I use it for Perl development outside of work (where I have a beautifully configured XEmacs). It's light, fast and does the job well. It's great for quick hacks, having the ability to run Perl from inside and send output to a separate pane. Highly recommended.
    • The editor definately has replaced gvim for me. My only problem with Scite, which I was introduced to when it came with my Ruby install, is its dismal syntax highlighting for perl. It works well for other languages, but perl got shafted. Do you use a different perl.properties file than the standard one?
      • Don't know exactly what's the default, but in the Win32::GUI::Scintilla::Perl module we provide a set of perl keywords the lexer should look for.

        Not having spent hours and megabytes of source on it I can't really tell how well that works for really hairy Perl constructs.
