Page 1 of 1
Solutionsoft today announced the availability of the pre-release version of Perl Builder, the first IDE (integrated development environment) for Perl.
Perl Builder includes a visual editor and debugger, along with tools designed to help automate the Perl development process.
The Perl Builder IDE features a CGI simulator that enables developers to create, debug, and test their CGI scripts on the Microsoft Windows 95/NT OS without using a Web server.
The Perl Builder environment is similar to other IDEs such as Visual Basic, Visual C++ and Delphi, giving developers already familiar with those tools a head start. Among the features of Perl Builder are color syntax highlighting, a suite of debugging commands including breakpoints, watches, and single step, and "tool tip" variable inspection.
Perl Builder 1.0 is expected to be released on June 1, 1998 with a retail price of $149. Developers can download a free pre-release copy from the Solutionsoft Perl Builder Site.
