There are a few shareware programmers editors that support Perl syntax coloring, EditPlus, TextPad and BBEdit. Also a free visual debugger that works with PerlTk can be found at

Also, Perl comes with a text based visula debugger, just type perl -d

Powerful tools cost money :) Perl builder ( is $149 and Active State dedugger around $100. I think this is money well spent as it can save you many hours of work.

I have listed all the free tools I know of, did you follow the link to the Perl Tk debugger? I don't think there is any other answer for your question.

Sorry, I cannot do that. I belive good software should be payed for. Once PerlTK debugger is installed, I think you still start it with perl -d
