Publisher description for EngInSite Perl Editor Professional
EngInSite Perl Editor is a complete integrated development environment (IDE) for creating, testing and debugging Perl scripts, which runs on Windows 9x/NT/2000/XP or later. By bringing together the editing, testing and debugging instruments into a single, user-oriented environment, EngInSite Perl Editor makes it easy to develop sophisticated Perl applications right on your desktop. One of the most important features in EngInSite Perl Editor is the ability to run your Perl script within the integrated development environment (IDE) and see the results immediately. This is especially important for CGI scripts, because testing and debugging these scripts can often be difficult. If you have used an HTML authoring tool like Microsoft Front Page, you are probably used to creating web pages and immediately previewing them in your browser. This ability to preview the pages on your computer saves a lot of time; you typically move the HTML pages to your webserver only after they have been carefully edited and tested on the desktop. With CGI scripts, the situation is more complicated. Because CGI is integrated into the server, you can only test a CGI script on a webserver. So unless you have installed and configured a webserver, such as Apache, on your desktop computer, you can't use your browser to test a script on your local machine. For this reason, CGI scripts are typically tested and debugged directly on the server. However, this can be a difficult and confusing process, especially if you are not an experienced CGI developer or webmaster. In particular, finding and fixing problems in your scripts can be very difficult. You can use our Local Server (no installation nor configuration necessary), you can see the output right away in your web browser--in much the same way that you would preview a static HTML page. Or you can edit your scripts right on the remote server as if they are on your desktop and see real-life results. The choice is yours.
