I have Eclipse 3.3.2 Java Development IDE with the EPIC plugin 0.5.44 installed on a Windows XP box.
I am able to see the Outline view for Java files. For Perl files, the outline view shows up as blank. I've tried uninstalling Eclipse and deleting all the workspaces, but to no avail. any help would be appreciated
Check that you are opening the Perl files with EPIC (right-click, Open With...). Check editor association for file extension *.pl, *.pm in Preferences.
The file associations under Windows -> Preferences -> Editors -> File Associations are correctly associated with the EPIC Perl editor for *.pl and .pm files
So, you create a HelloPerl project, create and save a file named hello.pl in it with the following content:
...and Perl syntax highlighting and folding works, but the Outline still remains empty while this file is open in the editor?
I just checked with the latest 3.3.2 on Linux (no Windows here, sorry), and there are no problems with this scenario. I can't imagine how it could be Windows related either.
Also, I recommend that you install the latest 0.6.x instead (especially if you wish to use the debugger).
I had the 0.6.x release and had the same Issue. I reverted to the most recent stable release to check if it was an issue with 0.6.x being a test release
