    Announcement: "What Emacs lisp modules can help with programming Perl"

    Preface

    Emacs is your friend if you have to do anything comcerning software
    development: It offers plug-in modules, written in Emacs lisp
    (elisp) language, that makes all your programmings wishes come
    true. Please introduce yourself to Emacs and your programming era
    will get a new light.

    Where to find Emacs/XEmacs

    http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/emacs.html
    http://www.xemacs.org/

    o Unix Windows port (for Unix die-hards):
    install http://www.cygwin.com/ which includes native Emacs 21.x.
    and XEmacs port

    o Pure Native Windows port

    Emacs Perl Modules

    Cperl -- Perl programming mode

    http://math.berkeley.edu/~ilya/software/emacs/
    by Ilya Zakharevich

    CPerl is major mode for editing perl files. Also included in
    latest Emacs, but newest version is at Ilya's site. Note that
    the directrory at CPAN is out of date:
    http://www.cpan.org/modules/by-authors/id/ILYAZ/cperl-mode/

    Compared to default `perl-mode' that comes with Emacs, this
    one has more features.

    TinyPerl -- Perl related utilities

    http://tiny-tools.sourceforge.net/

    If you ever wonder how to deal with Perl POD pages or how to find
    documentation from all perl manpages, this package is for you.
    Couple of keystrokes and all the documentaion is in your hands.

    o Instant function help: See documentation of `shift', `pop'...
    o Show Perl manual pages in *pod* buffer
    o Grep through all Perl manpages (.pod)
    o Follow POD references e.g. [perlre] to next pod with RETURN
    o Coloured pod pages with `font-lock'
    o Separate `tiperl-pod-view-mode' for jumping topics and pages
    forward and backward in *pod* buffer.

    o Update `$VERSION' variable with YYYY.MMDD on save.
    o Load source code into Emacs, like Devel::DProf.pm
    o Prepare script (version numbering) and Upload it to PAUSE
    o Generate autoload STUBS (Devel::SelfStubber) for you
    Perl Module (.pm)

    TinyIgrep -- Perl Code browsing and easy grepping

    [TinyIgrep is included in Tiny Tools Kit]

    To grep from all installed Perl modules, define database to
    TinyIgrep. There is example file emacs-rc-tinyigrep.el that shows
    how to set up dattabases for Perl5, Perl4 whatever you have
    installed

    TinyIgrep calls Igrep.el to to do the search, You can adjust
    recursive grep options, set search case sensitivity, add user grep
    options etc.

    You can find latest `igrep.el' module at
    <http://groups.google.com/groups?group=gnu.emacs.sources> The
    maintainer is Jefin Rodgers <>.

    TinyCompile -- To Browse grep results in Emacs *compile* buffer

    TinyCompile is a minor mode for *compile* buffer from where
    you can collapse unwanted lines or shorten file URLs:

    /asd/asd/asd/asd/ads/as/da/sd/as/as/asd/file1:NNN: MATCHED TEXT
    /asd/asd/asd/asd/ads/as/da/sd/as/as/asd/file2:NNN: MATCHED TEXT

    -->

    cd /asd/asd/asd/asd/ads/as/da/sd/as/as/asd/
    file1:NNN: MATCHED TEXT
    file1:NNN: MATCHED TEXT

    End
