I have a full unix file path like: /etc/var/www/temp.txt

How could I open this up in Eclipse on OSX with one shot? When I go to file open it has no place for a full directory path?

what version of eclipse? a screenshot of the open dialog would help too. – John T Nov 5 '09 at 4:20

So long as you're using the Cocoa version of Eclipse is when you are on the open dialog, press Command-Shift-G and enter the UNIX path to the parent folder of the file. You can then select the file.

Unfortunately open -a does not work with Eclipse.
