    3.12: Where can I get perl-mode or cperl-mode for emacs?

    Since Emacs version 19 patchlevel 22 or so, there have been both a
    perl-mode.el and support for the Perl debugger built in. These should
    come with the standard Emacs 19 distribution.

    Note that the perl-mode of emacs will have fits with "main'foo" (single
    quote), and mess up the indentation and highlighting. You are probably
    using "main::foo" in new Perl code anyway, so this shouldn't be an
    issue.

    For CPerlMode, see http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/wiki/CPerlMode

    are not necessarily experts in every domain where Perl might show up,
    so please include as much information as possible and relevant in any
    corrections. The perlfaq-workers also don't have access to every
    operating system or platform, so please include relevant details for
    corrections to examples that do not work on particular platforms.
    Working code is greatly appreciated.
