Eclipse For Perl Dev

Vim has been my main development tool for Perl… Until now! A co-worker suggested that I try Eclipse, which is an IDE mainly geared towards Java coding. I am still learning the ropes, but I feel that it is worth a try if you are doing any object oriented coding with Perl.

Besides installing the Eclipse IDE, I suggest the following plug-ins:

– Subclipse (supports Subversion)

– EPIC (enhances Perl support within Eclipse)

– VIM Plugin (adds VIM support!)

– QuantumDB (lots of database stuff)

– MySQL Connector
