      I"m having difficulty with the perldoc features of EPIC. I highlight an item (e.g. Getopt::Long). When I right click, the option is "Perldoc (Ctrl + shift + H)", not the sub-menu

      Module/Program Doc
      Module/Program Source
       Built-in function doc

      .. as shown in the EPIC Users' guide PDF.

      When I execute the command, I get 4 dos boxes, each attempting to show the 4 items that should be in the sub-menu. Plus the eclipse "perldoc" pane is empty.

      Any ideas? THis is EPIC 0.3.10 on Eclipse 3.0.1 on WinXP

      THanks, Jim

        I was reading the PDF for the 0.30 release. THe context menu looks like the one shown on pg 23 of the 0.3.10 Users guide. However, the perl doc still ends up in a command window, not in the perldoc Eclipse view

      thanks, jim

      I have the same issue, have you found a solution to this?

        Do NOT use wperl.exe, use perl.exe.
