Today, while I was developing as often within the Eclipse IDE, I noted a strange thing at the bootom, in the status bar :
The row and column indicator has something strange to me: instead of showing two values (one for the current row and one for the current column), it has three values!
In the previous example, it has
265 : 1 : 6847 .
The meaning is as follows:
265 is the current row,
1 is the current column and
6847 is the number of characters of the file.
I think the information could be displayed a little better, for example making the file size (in characters) less intrusive, since it is not very interesting, at least to me, while developing or writing code.
I discovered also another thing: if you click on that portion of the status bar the
go-to-line window pops-up .
