I'm trying to use the Padre IDE for perl.
From what I have read I guess it is not really a bonified IDE.
However, I have read that one can at least use it to debug
your code. It also has a feature to run your scripts. I have tried
both of this functions with little success. If I have my .pl files
in the correct directory and the program does something
very simple like print out "Hello World", then when I run
I get "Hello World" in the output window. However, if I
try to run a program that requires input from the keyboard
(<STDIN> I don't get anything in the output window. Is there
another window for input? Also, when I try to debug/step
through my code, it steps through but I don't see any
variables in my 'variables' window and again when it
steps to a line that requires user input (<STDIN>, it seems to hang
up and not do anything. Does anyone have any experience
with Padre or advice how to get the supposed features to work?
