I want to use Eclipse to do my Perl programming. For this purpose I have installed the EPIC-Plugin.
But how do I get the EPIC plugin to automatically insert the templates? Or the shebang? This is possible with Java-Class files out-of-the-box. Why not with EPIC? The templates that I talk about are the one under: Window -> Preferences Perl EPIC -> Editor -> Templates
They don't seem to work at all. For Java the work just fine (almost same location - just replace "Perl Epic" with "Java")eclipseperleclipse-pluginepic
I have been using Eclipse - EPIC - Perl for a couple of years now. (On Windows XP SP3 and on Windows 7). I find it an excellent tool (much better than PADRE) which I had initially tried out. Its management of variable monitoring is superb.
Once in while I encounter a little bug, but usually those are quite workable. I'm simply not using the templates (on Windows you don't need the shebang anyway).
You should type the name of the template in the editor first - then hit ctrl+space, it should show you a list of all templates starting with that name.
So if you need a template to auto insert a shebang for example, have a template with these fields:
After you enabled and applied, you should be able to auto insert the shebang when you type #! then ctrl+space.
Also, you can import templates externally, there are tons online with all the basics covered. :)
Hope this helps.
