Well, I currently use WinEDT V5.6 for this task, which also
doesn't support Perl syntax, but I rarely if ever use any
aspect of either WinEDT or TeXWorks that requires an knowledge
of the underlying source syntax : I use both almost exclusively
to simply launch programs associated with a given source (tab) --
PdfTeX, PdfLaTeX, XeTeX, Perl, Adobe Acrobat, ...
