    Hi,

    epic is a great thing. I just can't get the content assist running. When I type

    Net::SMTP::

    nothing happens. I am used to Ctrl-Space from the Java perspective to activate the code completion, but nothing happens. Also, when I move the mouse on it, nothing happens. But it should work, since I am in the epic perl editor, and the syntax check works. So, why doesn't the content assist come up?

    BTW, I think the content assistent should work on normal key words as well. I expected that I could type

    prin<ctrl+space> and the word is completed to "print". Is that probably a feature that is easy to implement?

    Unfortunately, the "quick reference feature" doesn't work either.

      okay, it works now. Before, I just copied the text
      Net::SMTP::
      into the editor and waited for sth to happen, but nothing came up. But when I actually type the last ":", it works. However, I would suggest you introduce a shortcut like <ctrl+space>, like in the Java Perspective.

      Also, when I just type
      Net::
      it would be nice if a list of available modules came up...
