i downloaded epic today and tried it on one of my perl projects. it worked fine with the *.pm files. but in that project the (main)program file doesn't have a file extention so it wasn't recognized by the epic-perl editor. i added an entry to window-preferences-workbench-file associations: namely the program name and selected epic as the associated editor for it. in the navigator the file is now shown to be associated with epic (camel icon is shown) but when i doubleclick the file the following error message occours:
The file has been changed on the file system. Do you want to load the changes?
it doesnt matter if i click yes or no the only thing the editor-window shows is ERROR
it works well if i rename the file to prgname.pl but that isnt really what i want to do.
i'd apreciate any help
sorry that it took so long to answer (I was on vacation).
Opening files without extension is really a problem both in Eclipse and the
editor plugin itself.
We are looking for a solution (others reported this as well) but could not
So for the time being I really have no solution for you, sorry about that.
has the situation changed in any way in the last three years?
I can associated file names with Epic's editor, but I still seem to be unable to to Eclipse to open any file without an extension with Epic. Anything new here?
This feature request you mention is tracked here: https://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1256145&group_id=75859&atid=545277
The required enhancement in the Eclipse workbench has not been implemented so far (note that it has been open for over 3 years on the Eclipse side).
Thank you very much for the clear answer, Jan. I guess this will severely influence my file name practices.
