Detection of common beginner errors
Padre can now detect common beginner errors when in beginner mode which can be turned on in Edit -> Preferences. Simply run a Perl script using "Run -> Run Script (F5)" or "Perl -> Common (beginner) errors" and it will catch most of the errors detailed in the PerlMonks "Little annoying mistakes" post.
Yes! Padre has an exciting extract subroutine refactoring tool which is based on Devel::Refactor. This is totally experimentally and will likely improve quite a bit in future releases. It is accessible from the Perl menu.
