Under Project Explorer listing of my projects and files there is a symbol on one of my C++ file I cannot find an explanation for.

As the attached images show one of my *.cpp file has a pinup like icon on it, while the other does not. What does this mean for this file?

I also have sometimes been wandering about strange icons overlaying the files and folders and other items in the project tree and couldn't easily determine their meaning.

Maybe you (i.e. Eclipse developers) could add mouse hover texts, that explain the individual overlays, or add a list of applied overlays to the file properties window?
