    Hello All,
    I'm new to Perl and EPIC, but not Eclipse.  I installed the latest EPIC plugin, I'm running Eclipse Indigo on a Win 7 machine.  I then used ppm to install PadWalker and everything appear to be fine.  I created a Perl project: HelloWorldPerl, a bin folder, then a script file inside of bin.  However, when I tried to setup the run configuration, HelloWorldPerl doesn't show up in the Project Selection window.  I realize it's not a java project and all the java projects show up there, but I'm at a loss as to how to setup the perl script to run it in eclipse?  What am I doing wrong here?

    You need to create a Perl Local launch configuration, not a Java one: http://epic-ide.org/guide/ch06s02.php

    Duh, I missed that in the manual.  Yes that is all that was needed.  It's working now, including stepping through breakpoints with the debugger.  Thanks for your help!
