This Eclipse plugin adds the following features to Eclipse:
- Show the encoding of the current editing text file in the trim area.
- Use the ICU component to detect the possible encodings of the current editing text file, and alert you to change encoding if the encoding may not be set correctly.
- Allow you to change encoding through the popup menu.
I worked in an environment where I needed to access remote files (which may be of UTF-8 or Big5) through the Remote System Explorer, but Eclipse do not detect the file encoding for me and will corrupt the file if I forget to set the file encoding properly, so I wrote this plugin.
If you use Remote System Explorer, you may want to try My RSE Extensions.
