    I truly love it when people put effort into better IDE-like support for Perl. Right now I'm undecided as to getting my emacs environment beefed up (e.g. packing in stuff like PerlySense) or trying to like (or make) the Eclipse tools better. EPIC [sourceforge.net] does have some momentum ATM, it seems, thanks in large part to PPI [cpan.org]. Since it looks like PerlySense is built on PPI too, I hope some of that momentum transfers its way too.
    • I'm not 100% sure how EPIC does its thing (I looked into it briefly last time they announced a release to see how command completion was done), but I think it could take advantage of PerlySense to get the information it wants to display and use.

      That's the point of PerlySense being heavy on the Perl side and rather light on the Emacs side, to be able to reuse it across different front-ends (for example, I envision an HTML front-end to make it usable for a team regardless of editor preferences).
