You can buy Komodo IDE and PDK/TDK separately for $590, but without upgrades, support, or access to Safari Books Online...

Or for $5 more you can buy Pro Studio and enjoy all upgrades and updates for both Komodo and PDK/TDK, technical support, and access to 10,000+ books on Safari Books Online!

If you were to purchase Komodo IDE and PDK/TDK separately with Upgrades and Support (no access to Safari), you'd spend $764. Pro Studio is the logical choice for your Perl development needs--and wallet.
