Perl Editor

 

Syntax Expansion

Expands common block structures (if, for, while, ...) when the initial keyword is typed. For example, when "if" is typed followed by a space, SlickEdit inserts the parentheses for the condition and the braces. You can define additional structures to be expanded.

 

Defs Tab

SlickEdit's Defs Tab gives you a powerful overview of the currrent file, showing all the functions and globals in a file and highlights the function that the cursor is currently in. Double clicking an item will take you there immediately. List items alphabetically or by line number.

SmartPaste®

Automatically formats line selections when pasted. The pasted code is formatted to match the indentation of the new location and the brace style adjusted to match your settings.

 

Syntax Indent

When you press Enter in SlickEdit, the cursor does not just go to the beginning of the line. It goes where it belongs. This works even for complicated statements.

 

Surround With

Use to surround existing lines of code with a new structure such as: if, for, while, and try. The existing code is automatically placed inside braces and indented. Additional structures can also be defined for Surround With.

 

Code Templates

Use to automate the creation of common code elements, like a standard class implementation or design patterns. You can create templates for a whole file or multiple files.
