    Hi all,

    In eclipse Version: 3.5.1 and the epic version  0.6.35 i have a perl process running in the background which grows all the time till the memory is consumed.

    What can i do ?

    Thanks,
    David

    Do you mean that the process is there without you having launched anything? If so, it could only be the syntax validator. However, EPIC launches a new process per each validated file. So it's not really a background process that should grow in size over time - unless you have a source file which causes perl -c to go crazy (seems improbable).

    Can you figure out the arguments of that process to see if it is the syntax validator? If you kill this process, what happens then?
