Dealing with missing modules

I'm using ActiveState w/ eclipse & EPIC on windows for cross-platform perl

Unfortunately, my @INC doesn't seem to be finding ppm managed perl modules.

Can someone please tell me what else I need to be doing here?

Use slashes instead of backslashes in paths entered in the include path
Do "Project/Clean..." after changing include paths.
Does the same problem occur when you run "perl -c" in a
DOS box? Does it occur if you run perl -c with the appropriate -I switches?

No problems outside of epic/eclipse.  Although I did add the includes for
perl/lib and perl/site/lib, I didn't add the other.  That's picked up by
epic from activestate.  I don't know where to change it.

If you run a script which does foreach $i(@INC) { print "$i\n"; }, does
it print the same include path both in EPIC and on the command line? Also,
did you clean the project?

sorry, I got called away on other small fires.

Project/clean seems to have solved this issue.  I'll keep an eye out and
post more on this if it happens any more.
