How to navigate variables

    I'm new to eclipse and am trying to set it up for Perl coding.  I'm having difficulty finding a way to display the current variables for navigation, like in what Eclipse calls the Outline View.

    I found that variables could potentially be displayed via the debugger with PadWalker.  But this seems an unnecessary step (keep running debugger as I code), and I haven't got it to work yet anyways.

    Has this feature simply not been developed yet?

      this could potentially be hard [perhaps that being its reason for not being implemented] as variables in perl are created "on the fly" at run-time, however I suppose it should be possible.  Anyone?

        And just to clarify what I'm talking about, here is a screenshot from EngInSite Perl Editor.

        Under 'Navigate'  it lists folders for Uses, Functions, Scalars, Arrays, and Hashes that then list instances and line numbers.

        Maybe this is not easy (I have no idea), but EngInSite is free.  I just hate giving up that feature even while gaining all the cool features in EPIC.
