Hey everyone!

I've been getting into programming in Perl, and I wanted to know if anyone knew of a syntax highlighting text editor for Linux, or any other decent programming framework?

Thanks everyone!

Also every editor supports Syntax Highlighting.

Few cut it to make a good IDE environment though ... and some are made for you to build into your own IDE.

I use gvim.

But you may prefer something along the lines of geany or gedit if you aren't familiar with how vim works.

The ubuntu basic notepad comes with syntax highlighting, plus, if you open the options, you can add some extra features and plugins.

Or you could try vi(m).. or emacs...

Awesome! I've been using Vim, and I like it, but I don't want to have to use something based within the terminal if I don't have to. I like working command line, but it's nice to see buttons every now and then. :)

I didn't realize that gedit had syntax highlighting...it only shows up AFTER you save it! Ha! I also picked up Geany and KDevelop. I'll play with them until I figure out what I like most.

Thanks everyone!
