Welcome to the feedback forum of Padre, the Perl IDE. Do you have an idea? Do you recognize a good idea when you see one? We want to hear from you!

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. How can I step through a Perl program using Padre?

    How can I step through a Perl program using Padre?

    I have installed Padre and its dependencies "Wx" and "Alien::wxWidgets", but all I can do with Padre at the moment is edit and save a Perl program, and run a Perl program from start to finish.

    I see no icons for doing the normal debug activities, such as step into the next line, execute a function, and step out of a function

    Can anyone help? There is a Padre web page saying you can use a Tools->Advanced option to get some additional icons on the toolbar but it doesn't work.…

    • Make advanced search selectable

      There appears to be two kind of searches in Padre. (Not counting Find in Files.) Most commonly, a red x appears in the lower left corner and a bare search box appears at the bottom. However, sometimes, when Padre feels like it, a slightly more advanced search box appears. (I believe it even contains a case sensitivity checkbox.) However, there is no apparent way of telling Padre that you want to use the slightly more advanced search box.
