Overview:[edit]

Perl is a very common scripting language used by both host and embedded developers.  Perl is also supported when using Debug Server Scripting for CCS.  The use of Perl with DSS is described at this link.  There is an Eclipse plug-in package that adds support for doing Perl development within Eclipse based IDEs like CCSv4.  This plug-in package is called EPIC.  Features supported are syntax highlighting, on-the-fly syntax check, content assist, perldoc support, source formatter, template support and a Perl debugger.  More information on EPIC is available on the EPIC website
