I highly recommend using Emacs for editing Perl code.  It has tons more
features than 'vim', and is more easily customized and extended.  If you
really like he 'vi' style key-bindings, you can use 'M-x viper' or start
it with 'emacs -l viper' and say "yes" to the question on start-up.  You
won't know until you try it.
