    I'm no perl jockey, but vim is the best editor I've used for pretty much anything. I know others who swear by SlickEdit, but it's not free.

  • You can either use an EPEL package or padre.perlide.org/trac/wiki/DownloadCPAN . I hate to point this out but the installation of Padre is quite well documented in the Padre website.

First, install cpanm (http://cpanmin.us/)

Next, install some required RPM:

sudo yum install wxGTK-devel perl-ExtUtils-Embed perl-File-HomeDir perl-Term-ReadLine-Gnu 


sudo yum install wxGTK3

Next, install some required CPAN modules:

sudo cpanm Fatal Module::Pluggable Alien::wxWidgets Debug::Client DBD::SQLite::db ORLite ORLite::Migrate

Last step:

sudo cpanm Padre Padre::Plugin::Git

You should follow the instructions on the padre wiki, selecting the Fedora installation. Or follow the instructions for installation from CPAN:

cpan Padre

  • @user3021349 if you want us to help you, you are going to have to be a tad more specific than "I got some error". What error?
