    If I have working directory that contains lots of different perl scripts (/bin, for instance) and I want to open and edit one of those scripts, EPIC automatically creats a workspace and imports all scripts in that directory into the workspace.

    Is there some way to open, edit, and save a file outside of a workspace?

      Have you tried using the Eclipse File menu and chooing "Open File..." ?

      Yes.  However, I'm probably using the wrong terminology to describe my issue.  Let me try again...

      When I File/Open the script, EPIC creates an 'epic_links' section in the Navigator window.  This new 'epic_links' folder contains the perl script I've opened as well as a list of all other files in that subdirectory.

      I open / edit the perl script I'm after. My Tasks and Problems area now populate with information on this particular perl script.  I make my quick changes and save the file.  I still have the epic_links folder in the Navigator.  My Tasks and Problems still contain info on this script.

      Basically, I want to make some quick changes to someone else's perl script, and once saved and closed, to be no longer informed of any Problems or Tasks contained in that particular script.

      Does this make any sense?
