Effective code, i.e., code that follows language-specific idioms and avoids anti-patterns, is an important goal in software development. Although the correct usage of certain idioms can be enforced by static code analysis, some issues can only be detected by humans, e.g., the use of meaningful names. Code reviews can help to improve code quality by detecting violations of these idioms as well as bugs in early phases of development. For efficient code reviews, especially in distributed development, good tool support is recommended. A suitable review tool needs to allow annotating parts of the code with comments and suggestions for improvement. This talk demonstrates how to review Perl code with an Eclipse plugin.
