installation does not work

    I have the following setup:
    Win 2K Pro
    Eclipse 2.1
    Epic (latest as of 11/25/2003)

    I have unzipped the files to the plugin folder under the eclipse directory.
    I get none of the features...or options.
    - No camel icon for files
    - Nothing in the "open with..." drop down.

    Can anyone please point me to help docs, or post help here.

    Thank you

      First of all, make sure you restart eclipse after unzipping.  They wont show up until you do.

      Secondly - the first time you open the Perl perspective you may have to go to Open Perspective->Other and then choose Perl from the myriad of options there.

      If you still cant see it ... I would try deleting the plugin folders for the epic editor and try reinstalling them.

      I have the same problem. Further, there is no "Perl Perspective" in Open Perspective -> Other, nor is there a "Perl Project" in New -> Project. No Preferences -> Perl, no Perl Editor in the context menu.

      I CAN, however, do Show View -> Other -> RegExp.

      I've tried deleting the folders in the eclipse/plugins directory and reinstalling them. No luck.

      I'm using Eclipse 2.1.2 on Win2K,

        Check your plugins directory underneath your eclipse root directory.  Make sure you actually have the all of the epic packages installed.  There should be 3 or 4 ( 4 with the spellchecker ) plugin folders inside with the prefix 'org.epic'.  You may have inadvertently only installed some of the features.
