Found a way to edit files with no extension!

Ok.. so I was looking all around for a way to open extension-less files
in the Perl editor and was having no luck. But when searching for something
to add emacs like tab indenting (anyone know of anything, EE2E only works
with Java) I came across Emacsish
which gives a "Set Mode" option, so you can open the file in the default
editor, then do Set Mode, pick the .pl extension and you are magically transported
to the Perl editor. By no means an ideal solution but at least I can edit
the files without changing established names.

I apologize in advance if there is a better way I have missed. Thought I
would share, though.
