I am using
Perl : v5.10.0 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread
Perl5db : 1.30
Eclipse : 3.2
on windows xp sp3
I am trying to debug as simple perl code but while doing so i am getting the following error
message " EPIC ERROR : Timed out while waiting for perl debugger connection"
and also getting the following warning in the console
Use of uninitialized value in subroutine dereference at (null) line 1.
perl5db.pl did not return a true value.
BEGIN failed-compilation aborted.
Please help me solve this error
Does it work with the current version of Eclipse?
I don't know as i didn't give a try at it. Does it have anything to do with eclipse version?
Possibly. You should find out by trying.
I have tried it on eclipse 3.3 also but there wasn't any success, still the same error.
Try to include the path to perl5db.pl (Perl\lib directory) to the Perl Include Path to your project.
(Project->Properties->Perl Include Path)
This works for me.
Did you get an answer to this? I've got exactly the same problem:
Windows 7 64-bit
Active State Perl 64-bit 5.10.1 build 1007
Eclipse 64-bit 3.5.0 Build I20090611-1540
Pad walker 1.9
Java 1.6.0_18 64-bit
EPID seems to run ok but the debugger doesn't
Others have reported this bug. A workaround seems to be to modify Cwd.pm: https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=2907155&group_id=75859&atid=545274
Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. All working now.
