Padre is Perl Application Development and Refactoring Environment.

install Padre with Perl 5.10 with Win32 is a bit painful.
the ppm in wxperl http://www.wxperl.co.uk/repository/ is fine with Perl 5.8 while broken with 5.10

while it would be OK if you follows the instruction in http://padre.perlide.org/wiki/Download
cpan> look Alien::wxWidgets
$ perl Makefile.PL
$ dmake
$ dmake test
$ dmake install
$ exit
cpan> look Wx
$ perl Makefile.PL
$ dmake
$ dmake test
$ dmake install
$ exit
cpan> install Padre

while install the Alien::wxWidgets it needs download wxWidgets-2.8.8.tar.gz from sourceforge. it's better to download it with your download tool instead of the Perl command.
it takes much more longer than what I thought. but finally it works.

Padre is good. it's pure Perl with Wx.
- highlight for Perl
- open from last
- bookmark
- subs in right
and others. it's really good.

while it has bugs. like
- can open many instance of one file
- no highlight for HTML
and others.

OK, it's still worthing to try. and I'm reading the source code now to see if I can fix a bug or contribute a plugin.
