EPIC 0.6.39 on Eclipse 3.6.1, Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit.
The documentation says that to add project libraries to the @INC path you "right click on the project icon and select Properties". But the "Perl Include Path" submenu item simply isn't there. Not in the right-click context menu, and not in the pull down "Project"/"Properties" on the top menu.
Putting the libraries in a PERL5LIB environment variable doesn't cure the "module not found" problem either.

    Does the project have Perl nature? If not, Add Perl nature first from the same menu where the Properties item appears. If you cannot see the add Perl nature option, it is likely that EPIC is not installed at all (is anything else working as expected?)

    OK, that's fixed it. It's an existing Perl project which I imported from elsewhere on my disk and the Perl "nature" wasn't assigned. Can't remember whether any wizard ran during the import and whether or not it asked about nature.

    The Perl editor was working fine, as were Run and Debug for programs that didn't require local modules in @INC. In my defence I might suggest that somethingin one of those could check for Perl nature!
