+StartExplorer
+=============
+
+Eclipse-Update-URL: http://startexplorer.sourceforge.net/update/
+
+About
+-----
+
+The StartExplorer Eclipse plug-in offers tight integration of the system file
+manager (Windows Explorer, Gnome Nautilus, KDE Konqueror, Mac Finder, ...) and
+the shell (cmd.exe, Linux/Mac terminal) in Eclipse.
+
+Every now and then when working with Eclipse you'd like to examine a file or a
+folder inside the Eclipse workspace with your file manager or open a shell/cmd.exe
+in this location. Or you edit a file in Eclipse and would like to open the parent
+folder of this file in the file manager or shell. Or the file you are editing
+contains a string which references another file in the filesystem and you would like
+to do some of the things mentioned above with that referenced file. This plug-in
+gives you a convenient way to do all this by adding a few entries to Eclipse's
+context menus. Furthermore, it offers a different, more convenient way to issue
+any shell/dos command you like through customizable menu commands. Last but not
+the least this plug-in offers a tighter integration of the clip board, so copying
+a file's/folder's path to the clip board is only two mouse clicks (instead of
+opening the Properties dialog and selecting the path manually).
+
+Supported Platforms
+-------------------
+
+This plug-in is inherently not platform-independent. Currently, the following
+operating systems/desktop environments are supported out of the box:
+* Windows
+* Mac OS
+* Linux with Gnome
+* Linux with KDE
+* Linux with Xfce
+* Linux with LXDE
+
+However, even if your system is not listed there, you can still easily configure
+StartExplorer to work correctly on your system.
