  • On my Linux box, Ctrl+f opens the find dialog, and F3 does the expected. Ctrl+r brings up the find/replace. Can't remember if I customized these keys, but a I'm nut about that. Coming from a VIM background and the latest version (on my latest, faster machine) is finally up to the task. I won't be going back! For Linux Perl development, Komodo rocks!
  • If you get a moment, a brief review of Padre would be handy too.

    It might not be good enough to live a week using nothing but it yet, but a list of "Get Matts onto Padre" bugs would be a nice one to add to our list.

    • Couldn't get it working on OSX (mostly I think it was the GUI library - Wx). Spent about an hour on it and then gave up.

      Komodo has a .dmg file I just opened and it worked.

    • There is an old strawberry installer linked from the the wiki. Is there a more recent one that installs it an all deps easily? (esp the GTK things are a bit tricky IIRC)

  • "I'm not really sure what Komodo IDE could add over and above this"

    Simple: It includes a full visual runtime debugger which allows you to step through your code, set breakpoints at any line as well as evaluate expressions on the current state of your code while debugging it. Additionally there's automatic syntax-checking: X seconds after you stop typing it runs the open file through Perl's syntax check and then highlights all lines with errors or warnings.
    • Komodo Edit does the second thing there.

      I know there's lots of things the IDE adds (there's a comparison table on ActiveState's site), but most of them wouldn't be very useful to me.
