  • Is there an "open" comparison table of "perl-oriented features only" (compatibility of debuggerS, coverage, execute scripts, error location highlighting) in Padre versus EPIC/Eclipse and other free as in beer IDE?

    • I don't know what do you mean by "open". Padre has its own table of features [] that is based on the Perl Development Tools [] table in Perlmonks.

      If you have other measurements, you might start such a table on the Perl 5 wiki []

      We definitely would like to have tickets opened [] on features missing from Padre.

      • That table at perlmonks is very nice.

        I did not see perlipse [] , a quibble with them not you.

        By "open" I meant wiki-ish, updated by many authors as versions improve.

        I like the perldoc access in eclipse + epic, a nice model.

    • Are you really approaching a point where comparison with UltraEdit is realistic?

      I'm astonished, because I used UltraEdit for years before switching to Debian and hence to Emacs, and know just how good UE is.

      Well done!

      PS: This is not a reply to a reply, but to the original post. However I cannot see how to do that :-(.

      • As an Ultraedit user myself, I'm not ready to switch yet.

        We're certainly not at parity yet, but we're reaching the point where the idea of taking them on is starting to look pretty realistic.

        There's going to be a list of features that people NEED in order to switch.

        For me, that list is down to only Find/Replace in Files and unified editor support (all calls to start an editor turn into open calls to the current editor).

        Most of the rest we have, or aren't that important.

        That said, we're nowhere near as confi
