I just installed the newest version of eclipse, epic and activperl. Unfortunately
within a perlfile I cannot use control+shift+H. Also the quickreference
does not work. What is wrong with my installation.

Thanks' for any help

Check that the program 'perldoc' is in your PATH.
I'm not sure what you mean by 'quickreference'.

Thanks'for your answer but this is not the case. I installed my ActivePerl
distribution below "C:\Perl" and "C:\Perl\bin" is in my path variable. There
exists a perldoc.bat in "C:\Perl\bin" which works on the command line.

Quick reference is a term used in the "EPIC User's Guide" (page 21). You
do not need have perldoc installed in order to get some information about
keywords. You can select a keyword, move the cursor over the selection and
should get a tooltip.
