Should'nt Eclipse be able to open the module, once we double click it in
the Outline Pane. 
I am not able to do this. Just wanted to confirm if this is part of e p
i c supported features or not.

??? What does mean 'open the module' ????

The script is already opened, and double-clicking on the listed modul-name
will position the cursor there. So, what's the problem about this?

I believe the user is referring to the ability to open the file for the
selected module (similar to "Open Declaration" in the Java editor).

If this is the case, I also agree it would be nice to have this functionality
via a context menu in the outline view and/or the code itself.

Sorry, still do not get it, what is requested resp. you want.

Context menu in the outline view is not provided. OK. So, you are missing
something there to open the already opened file??? The outline view IS for
the current file, so what additional thing are you looking for????

Could you give an example?

If I have the following code in my script:


use strict;
use CGI;
use DBI;
use Net::SMTP;

print "Hello world";


The outline view will look similar to the following:

[-] Modules
  <> CGI
  <> DBI
  <> Net::SMTP

What I was referring to was the ability to right-click on, say, CGI in the
outline view and have a context-menu displayed giving the option to open
the highlighted module ( in EPIC.

If you would like to have that kind of Feature, then please enter it in
the RFE with your sample. But perhaps with a more specific Subject, to know
what it's about.
