    There's no source included. What sort of sourceforge project includes no source?

    If you do not want a prefix or suffix, then Eclipse will warn you that the file has changed and asks to reload it. That's effectively a backup plugin more than a save-dirty...

    Works exactly the way I wanted, although I wish there has been some documentation. My version of the documentation is below: a) To install simply move the .jar file into your Eclipse/plugins folder and restart Eclipse. b) In Eclipse go to Preferences, General | Editors | Text Editors | Save Dirty Editors and configure your settings. The default of 300000 is 300 seconds or 5 mins - that's pretty much what I wanted. c) I restarted Eclipse again just to ensure my settings were loaded. If you have a dirty editing window after 5 minutes the plugin automatically saves a copy of the curent file with the added suffix (by default .snapshot). So edit my.txt, change something and then wait 5 minutes, a file called my.txt.snapshot will have been created in the same folder as the original file. If you then (as you normally would) save your changes to the original file, the snapshot is automatically deleted. HTH
