    Hi everybody,

    I would like to ask you what is you preferred workflow for Perl on Mac? So far I've been using Sublime Text + terminal (perl, though switching constantly between apps is not funny, and besides Terminal doesn't show me my errors.

    I've also tried to setup a new Build System for SublimeText:

    "cmd": ["perl", "$file"],
    "file_regex": "^[ ]*File \"(...*?)\", line ([0-9]*)",
    "selector": "source.perl"

    It kind of works, the problem is that it doesn't stop when user's input is required.

    What is your workflow? :)

    If you use Eclipse already (for Java programming, perhaps), give EPIC a try for your Perl needs.

    I've developer several large Perl systems using just a text editor and Terminal. The trick, maybe, is to Cmd+Tab to flip back and forth between the text editor and Terminal.

    What do you mean by Terminal doesn't show you your errors?
