Interesting regarding your reference to reports that cperl-mode is almost
unusable under emacs 22. I've not found this. I have noticed some
fontification that doesn't look correct and do get considerable 'error
messages' reported in the mini-buffer concerning unmatched parens etc, but
yo don't get this if your inserting parens or other delimiters in
pairs. For exmaple, qw/ will give unmatched/unbalanced errors after every
character you insert. I guess its possible this could impact on
performance. However, if you do qw/ /, with point inbetween the /s, then
you don't get the warning/errors after each character you insert.
I tend to use some of the 'hairy' options, which means when I do something
like an if or for/foreach etc, most of the delimiters are automatically
added in matched pairs - maybe thats why I'm not having the problems others
I've not noticed any problems with scrolling of pages or any slowness - not
sure if thats because I'm not suffering the same problems or maybe I'm just
naturally slow and therefore don't notice it!
