I'm surprised that nobody has mentioned EPIC, the Perl plugin for
Eclipse.  It works really really well, at least as well as the Java
version (although it can't do as much prediction as Java can because of
the nature of static vs dynamic languages).

Full subversion integration, bugzilla/trac/jira integration, regex
debugger, good syntax highlighting, builtin Perl Tidy, Perl Critic etc
etc and of course, you get support for other languages in the same

There is a git plugin, but it is somewhat basic - it's the main reason I
keep using subversion rather than git.

I don't know how well it supports XS.

If you've never tried it, I'd highly recommend it.  Like all new
environments, it takes a while to get used to, but it is worth making
the effort.
