Irritating CMD window popups on Win2k

    Hi,

    I'm running Eclipse 2.1.0 build 200303272130 & EPIC 0.1.0 on Windows 2000.

    Whenever I'm typing code into the editor for a Perl script, a CMD window flashes on the screen briefly about once per second. It stops when the syntax check comes up clean, so I think it's tied into the syntax checker. Anyone know if this is something I have configured wrong, or a bug, or an Eclipse "feature"? Is there any way to stop it? It's driving me nuts.

    Thanks,
    Trevor

      Hi Trevor,

      this is a known java problem.

      Here are the solutions given in the FAQ:
      http://e-p-i-c.sourceforge.net/faq.html

      1.  Using JDK 1.4 upward should fix the problem.
      2. If you are using ActiveState Perl use wperl.exe instead of perl.exe in the EPIC preferences.
      3. If you want to use a different Perl interpreter (e.g. cygwin perl) download launcher.zip unpack it (e.g. to  c:\launcher) and specify c:\launcher\launcher.exe in front of the Perl Execuable in the EPIC preferences.

      Hope that helps.

      Jochen
