Beginner question: EPIC on Eclipse on Windows

I'm not a Perl developer and I've inherited some Perl scripts.  I've installed EPIC on Eclipse and have a project defined with the .pl and .pm files included.

When I try to run the project, the message "Errors exist in required project(s)" is displayed.

I can see that one .pl file has a small red x next to it, which I assume means that file has a problem.  

I want to view the problem.  How do I do that?

(embarrassed) Thank you.

OK, I figured that one out.

The error is "Compilation failed in require" for a 'use' statement, using a .pm file.  Now I'm having trouble figuring out what is wrong with the .pm file.  There is no red x for it.

There is a red x next to the 'use' statement that is in error, but clicking that takes me no further.

When you run the project, you should get a more detailed error.

When you try to run it, you'll get a dialog stating errors exist, asking if you want to run anyway.  Just run anyway.  In the output window (bottom section below the editing window in the default config), the standard output will be black, the standard error will be red - so the error should be red.

Thank you.  That solves it for me.

I was not proceeding from that dialog.  Silly me...
