That would have to be SDRAM...
I was more interested on the eclipse Perl modules.
I will try installing it at home on my faster machine, it might just 
work well on it :)

I hate komodo, I downloaded the trial version for linux (oh, we are 
talking about linux...) and it was slow and didn't have that many cool 
features to replace my editor.

I will check if KDevelop supports Perl. I checked more than a year ago 
and it didn't.

One thing I would say about my editor, is that even when I ssh from home 
or whatever, I can still use all the features.
Which of course is not the case with graphical editors.
X over ssh isn't what I want to do to fix a bug after work hours :)
