    Hi everyone, I'm new to perl and epic.

    Could someone please confirm my findings about the (horrofiying) limitations of content assist?

    use MyPackage::<ctrl-v> will not list my sub packages/classes

    Content assist will not list Constants of a package/class (this one really hurts the most) if outside the class
    e.g.
    $val = MyPackage::SOME_CONSTANT;   (Content assist will not help here?)

    No method signature whatsoever?

    Hope someone can clarify this for me..

    Did you go into the Perl Project settings and add paths to the locations of your custom classes?  I tend to put all my classes in the /lib directory of the project then just add that directory to the project path.  The good thing is that you can use the ${project} style variables Eclipse uses for paths, the not so good thing is that you can't edit any typos, you have to type the path in all over.
