[eclipse-dev] Information for Mac port users

If you are using the Eclipse mac port at
be aware that out of the box, Zip files are unzipped using Stuffit 
Expander, which does not like some of the long filenames that the Eclipse 
build uses. It ends up truncating them, which causes numerous problems. 
(Mac is only just getting used to very long filenames..)

Furthermore, Mac users which use IE will find that the download manager 
will (by default) automatically unzip downloads using this mechanism.

To properly unzip the port:

(Assuming you download to the desktop)
From a terminal window:

cd ~/desktop
unzip eclipse-SDK-I20020917-macosx-ca

Eclipse will appear in a directory on the desktop called 'eclipse'
