Comment 2 Jeff Pound 2005-07-22 15:07:56 UTC
The problem appears to be that eclipse can't create a file buffer from files
without extensions. see bug 162447

Comment 3 Tom Tromey 2005-08-18 17:25:24 UTC
FWIW I can't reproduce this with eclipse-platform-3.1.0_fc-6
(I was able to reproduce it with older versions though)
My test case is the Classpath ChangeLog file, though I have edited
several ChangeLog files and other files without extensions successfully.

Comment 4 Andrew Overholt 2005-08-24 14:43:11 UTC
Hmm.  Jeff's finished now so should we close this RAWHIDE?

Comment 5 Tom Tromey 2005-09-09 17:10:10 UTC
This works reliably for me with rawhide eclipse.
I've tried a number of different projects.
