Dear community

I have downloaded the EPIC-plug-in for Eclipse and installed. I am running
this on a Windows machine, with ActiveState Perl installed on it. As I have
the wrong PadWalker package installed, I would like to install the PadWalker
module from the EPIC homepage as described in the user's guide. Unfortunately,
I cannot find this module anywhere on Could
you provide me with a more precise link to the module?

Thanks a lot for your help and I am really enjoying the EPIC plug-in!

If you have the current version of Perl from ActiveState, then you can install
the PadWalker module using ppm from their repository. There is no longer
a need to download it from EPIC web site. The user guide is outdated in
this respect.

Despite what you say, my installed Padwalker is not recognised, and I get
a warning message when starting the debugger: "The procedure entry point
Perl_Icomppad_ptr could not be located in the [dll] perl58.dll"

This results in the displayed message in the Variables window: "Error -
Install PadWalker Perl module to see local variables"

Which version of ActiveState Perl do you have?

I have the same problem.  I have ActiveState ActivePerl installed,
and I used ppm to install PadWalker 0.09.  The Debugger doesn't work.  May
I know how to get it to work?  Thank you.
