  • Hello,

    I am getting the following errer:

    The procedure entry point "perl_Icomppad_ptr" could not be located in the dynamic link library perl58.dll

    while trying to debug.  I originally installed PadWalker from ActiveState, then, per other conversation here, downloaded and installed the version from here.  I still get the error.

    I am running ActiveState 5.8.4 on Win XP with Eclipse 3.0.1.

    Ideas?

      There are two PadWalker versions in

      http://e-p-i-c.sourceforge.net/

      One for version 5.8.0, another for 5.8.1 or higher, did you download the latter?

      Also, are you sure unistalled old one for activestate?

      I have the same configuration as you and downloading and had the same problem until I performed the above steps.

      However, my debugger still has problems parsing variables and can crash eclipse...
