Hi forum,

I have a question. Is there anyway to configure LDT so that a file without a file extension will be treated like a file with a .lua extension. This is because I am programming for a platform where the lua script can't have an extension.
I know I can just rename the file but I want to use an ftp sync program with it so that I can just save the file and it will automaticly be on the ftp server correctly(without an extension)

thank you in advance

Hi Thibault,

I am afraid it is not possible yet. There is an Eclipse bug about it[1].
You can follow efforts made on it to know when it will be solved.

Hi,

It seems that there is no solution to your problem right now, but you should take look on this bug: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=46297

Hi,
You could open a file with any Eclipse Editor thanks to the "open with" menu.
As this is mentioned in the bug, there no way to link an editor to all the files without extension.

But this bug will not fix all the problems, there are some features in LDT (like TODO, error handling, autocompletion, debug) which need the ".lua" extension to work completely.

You could open a bug, if you think this will be a good improvement.

Hi,
Thanks for all the responses. The way I was thinking of sort of solving it, is by using a batch script to transfer the files from the ftp server and rename them to .lua .
I have tried this already but sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I just went on the forums to ask if there was a better way of doing it.
I guess I just have to wait for an official solution to fix the problem.
For now Ill try to do other things using batch scripts or figuring out something else.

Again, thanks for the responses.
