I can't really see which part of the output you don't like, but it may be
sensible to upgrade to the current version of Eclipse (3.3.x) and EPIC 'testing'

great, thank you for your help. I Installed the last version of Eclipse,
and last version of EPIC, and now it is work.
Thank you.

I have a current Eclipse build (3.3.2) and EPIC version 0.5.45 and I am
having the same trouble.
My question is what the difference is between my version of EPIC and the
'testing' version.
I'm new to Perl, but this is my dev machine and I don't want to put anything
on it that will compromise its stability.

Is there a way that I can get the debugger to work without using a 'testing'
version of the package?

The 'testing' version has a lot of changes in the debugger code. For this
reason debugger fixes generally only go into 'testing', while other fixes
also go into 'stable'. Additionally, testing gets new features while stable
doesn't (see "Feature Request" entries in the ChangeLog).

You don't have to uninstall stable and you can always easily switch back
to it using Help/Manage Configuration) if you discover some problem in 'testing',
but I predict it won't be necessary.
