    I tried it, but out of the box it only recognized .pl files (can be customized to recognize .t and .pm of course) and -- more annoyingly -- whenever it found an error, it moved the point from wherever I was writing bad code to the first syntax error it could fine.

    This invariably led to me typing something like:

    my $my_long_vari

    then pausing to think, and it would just pop me over to the closing ; somewhere completely uninteresting to me.

    Way too intrusive in other words.

    It seems that kind of thing should be customizable though.
