Unable to create part...

    When I try to open a Perl mod in my Perl project I get the error "Unable to create part: $filename_here". The resulting editor window displays the text "An error has occurred when creating this editor".

    I'm using j2sdk1.4.2_01, and Eclipse 3.0. Running from the command line with the -debug switch shows no errors.

    Any suggestions?

      which editor are you using (Color Editor or Colorer plugin) ?
      What is the file extension of the Perl file you want to open?

      I tried using the Colorer extension, but it prevented Eclipse from even acknowleding that epic was installed. No errors, just no epic. So it's just a straight unzip of epic into the plugins directory.

      The Perl mods I'm trying to work with are just .pm files. Eclipse can open other files such as plain text files without issue.

      Also, this is a Redhat 9 workstation.

      I used EPIC from CVS with still no luck. So I've downgraded to Eclipse 2.1 and everything works properly.

      Sorry, thank you.
