I have just dowloaded Open Perl IDE. I don't know Perl very well (I'm hoping to use your program to learn, wish me well...). So far it looks like a very tight, well-made IDE, so I want to congratulate you on that.
However, I noticed a mistake in your translation that I thought you would want to know about...
In the shortcut keys for the menu commands, you have Strg+<letter> instead of Ctrl+<letter> and Umsch+<letter> instead of Shift+<letter>. For example, for File -> New, instead of Ctrl+N, it displays Strg+N. For Edit -> Redo, instead of Shift+Ctrl+Z, you have Umsch+Strg+Z.
I am reasonably certain about the meanings of these, having tested _some_ of them.
A minor error in an otherwise good program; I would correct it myself, if I knew Delphi and had a Delphi IDE... Just thought you would want to know about it.
This is probably because it's compiled with a german version of Delphi. I have an english version of Delphi, and this Shortcuts are in english. Maybe I should compile the next release version.
Thanks for your timely response! I guess I learned something new today: the language of your compilier makes a difference!

By the way, do you know of any other Delphi IDEs/compilers for Windows? I know about Kylix, but that is for Linux only. I have Linux, though not set up yet, and I would prefer not to have to transition source files from Linux to Windows. Any suggestions?
Thank you for your time,
There is a free version of Delphi 6 called Delphi 6 Personal Edition, you can download it from borlands Homepage: http://www.borland.com/products/downloads/download_delphi.html. It's a rather large download, about 50 MB. But there are also some free commandline compilers for Pascal, my favourite is Free Pascal: http://www.freepascal.org/. It's also not small ~15 MB. Free Pascal is a compiler for Pascal and Object Pascal and it has some extensions from Delphi like Exceptions, RTTI, Classes etc.
