I have Windows XP / ActivePerl 5.8.8 / Eclipse 3.2.2 I'm totally confused about the version of PadWalker that i should install. The FAQ says "version 1.0 or later". The latest version on CPAN is 1.5, from January 2007. The version on ActiveState's repository is 0.10, but when i look at the source, i see $VERSION = '0.09'; The HTML documentation says that it's from 2002. I had many problems using EPIC's debugger with EPIC 0.5.35 . So i went through the questions on the site here and saw that i should install PadWalker from ActiveState repository, which didn't help. Then i found somebody else's question on the forum, who described debugger problems similar to my own, and Jan suggested installing EPIC 0.6.4 . I did that and now the debugger works even worse and the variables view says: "An error occurred while dumping global variables; contents of the Variables view may become invalid." Any help?..

Post the stack trace of the error message you mention.

Maybe you can download this version: http://ppm.activestate.com/PPMPackages/zips/8xx-builds-only/Windows/PadWalker-1.5.zip unzip it and install it as described in README. If the above does not help, you could also install Microsoft Visual C++ Toolkit (it's free) and nmake (also free), then download PadWalker from CPAN and compile/install it yourself.

> you could also install Microsoft Visual C++ Toolkit (it's free) I have the complete Visual Studio 2005 - i use it in Real Life work. I used it to build PadWalker 1.5 and as i said, i had trouble with the debugger. As a matter of general principle - is the latest version of EPIC supposed to work with the latest CPAN version of PadWalker?

Yes, the latest version is supposed to work. I'm using PadWalker 1.5 myself without problems (Linux, not Windows, though). Maybe your trouble is not related to PadWalker. That's why I asked for more information.
