So I'm trying to create a key binding to move the cursor to the start of a line...column 1...anyone know if Eclipse is capable of this?
I know its not really a true 'editor' so we can't expect much in the way of good real editor functions, but you know, moving the cursor to the VERY start of the line would seem to be such a trivial one, and so basic I would think even Eclipse would be able to do this??
Anyone know how?

On Windows it's the Home key.
On OS X it's Cmd+
(Of course those can be re-assigned in Preferences if you wish).

Those are the keyboard mappings for the command "Line Start" which has two "phases": first it moves the cursor to the first non-whitespace character on the current line; pressed again it will move the cursor to the first column.
