||"I'll never know how much more difficult it would
have been to write my first non-trivial Perl program without Affrus, but
I do know that in 15 years of professional software development
(C++, Pascal, assembly, various scripting languages; Mac OS, UNIX,
Windows; drivers, applications, and operating systems) I've never
had such a smooth experience learning a programming language."
||"Affrus met my expectations pretty much instantly,
and as soon as my demo copy expired, I knew that I had to get the
paid version. I've loved
developing for OS X since it came out, and Affrus was the missing link in my
||"I purchased Affrus in the hope that it would
make learning Perl easier. I had been slogging through some of the
O'Reilly titles, using vim to
write code, and executing the scripts at the command line. I really
wanted an IDE, with a GUI. I had purchased Script Debugger a month
so earlier, and quickly grew to respect it, so I figured $99 for
Affrus was a pretty good gamble.
So far, I'm in love."
||"Affrus has made my perl programming/debugging
much easier. I like its interface and love the AppleScript integration.
enjoy working in a program that is made for OS X and not some java cross-platform
wanna be. Affrus is one of those great OS X apps that
makes me so happy I own a Mac and OS X."
||"I love Affrus. The arguments feature has been
particularly valuable for my work in cgi. I also like the ability
to do multi-line commenting, stepping into sub-routines and checking
variable values at certain points of execution.
Keep building this great application. I just used it today to write
a perl cron script."
||"Affrus is just outstanding! It exceeds my expectations,
primarily because it brings the level of ease-of-use to Perl that
had previously been available only in IDE's like CodeWarrior and
I forwarded information on Affrus to several of my co-workers, asking
if they had ever seen anything like it in their Unix and Win worlds.
The silence was deafening. I think they were somewhat chagrined that
they've debugged Perl for years and never had such an awesome tool."
||"As an IDE, Affrus is great. As a syntax-aware
editor, it's outstanding. Affrus looks good and is very stable --
no crashes at all . . . Thank you LNS!

||"Affrus is just what we had been waiting for,
a powerful Perl development tool wrapped in a beautiful Macintosh
user interface. Now I wonder how we ever got along without it."
|| Affrus is brilliant! It rates alongside the iPod
in terms of 'doing what it says on the tin'. Whilst I'm relatively
new to Perl, I've been
programming for 20 years, and if similarly simple, yet functional,
IDEs where available for other languages for the same price.... I'd
buy those too.
Bloody well done!
||Affrus has met every one of my expectations and then
some. Keep up the good work!

||Thank you for Affrus. I can't tell you how much time
it has saved me in learning Perl and producing my first commercial
Perl application for a customer at the same time.
No way I could have done it without it.
||Thank you for an excellent
I develop large web applications in Perl. While I deploy
on FreeBSD, I develop on OS X. I heard about Affrus from Studio Log,
it might be handy; after a day of evaluation I was sold. Since then
I've been using Affrus in some capacity every day, generally as a
debugging tool, and it has saved me a vast amount of energy.
