Hello all. I'm using Eclipse 3.3.0 with Epic 0.5.39 and none of my perl scripts show up with an outline - the tab just says 'An outline is not available'. This is a fresh install on a new machine, and I know I've had outlines for these scripts before. Any suggestions on how to get it back?

It's likely that you're not even opening the files with the EPIC editor, therefore no outline appears. Check your File Associations in Preferences.

.pl, .pm, and .cgi are all associated with the EPIC editor.

Right-click on the file and Open With... EPIC. Do you get an outline then?

Not sure I follow. I can open with Eclipse, but there's not an EPIC executable that I'm aware of to tell Windows to use.

Jan was talking about Eclipse's project navigator. If you right-click a file in it, you get a "Open with" submenu where you can choose EPIC. Manni

I had a similar issue when I downloaded EPIC and upzipped it into the Eclipse plugins directory. The problem cleared up when I instead installed EPIC using the Eclipse Update facility. If you didn't "install" EPIC, you might try that.

Hm, I don't really use the navigator, I just File->Open most of the time. It's more convenient than setting up a new workspace every time I nfs mount a different drive. I tried that and the outline does now show up, though, so I guess I'll just have to jump through the hoops. Thanks for the tips, all. :)

You don't have to create multiple workspaces: - projects can reside outside of the workspace (you can choose a non-default location during project creation) - individual files inside of a project may reside outside of the project (you can create a "linked file", which points to a file anywhere in your file system)
