Set up EPIC Source to compile in eclipse

    Hello there,

    I want to study the epic sources and maybe add a feature or two, but I am stuck setting up the project itself. :-(
    I've checked out the CVS, compiled a bunch of antlr-grammar files, but still complains about
    "LexExpectStringEnd cannot be resolved to a type" - I am clearly missing something.

    Is there a build system somewhere? A Guide? I searched the Intarwebs, but found nothing.

    Any help would be appreciated

    CVS is outdated. Throw away what you checked out. You should clone the 'testing' version from GitHub: then import individual projects into workspace (org.epic.debug, org.epic.doc, org.epic.feature.main, org.epic.lib, org.epic.perleditor, org.epic.perleditor-test, org.epic.regexp, org.epic.source).

    There used to be a short guide at - but it is now also outdated as far as references to CVS are concerned.

    To build successfully, you must have the ANTLR plugin installed. Because the update site at seems down, I uploaded a ZIP file to To install the plugin, unpack this ZIP into the "dropins" folder of your Eclipse installation and restart.
