I have some Java files on the disk. I would like to 'open' some of the java files in Eclipse and edit them, in an attempt to get familiar with Eclipse.

However, I don't find a way to open a java file. I "looked at" File->New and Import menu items but couldn't figure it out. Help doesn't seem to be straight forward, actually still getting used to things.
Any thoughts please.....

Thanks.

Eclipse is project based. So if my knowledge is correct there is no option

to do that. Only text pad will help you on that.

Thanks. Eclipse3 has that option and Eclipse 2.1 doesnt have that option.

Thanks. Duh! should have looked at it more closely.
I guess I got-off on a wrong note with Eclipse and so I often tend to assume that it doesn't support what I am looking for.

I suggest huckleberry pie. But the only thing on the gluten free menu is this tiny ad:
