Description Janne Leppanen 1999-07-20 22:57:19 UTC
[IAN] for me it looks like it works OKfor non-class files

In unix world it is very standard to use names with multiple dots in it like "java.tree.g" and the file is not recognized as ".g" file even though files like "java.g" and "treewalker.g" are. This make
s it practicly very hard to create compiler extensions to NetBeans. When renaming unrecognized type "java.tree.g" the produced name is not correct. I tried to rename to "javaTree.g" and the result was
 "javaTree.g.g.tree.g" which is NOT what I wanted. I have to use OS tool to be able to give it a correct name.

I`m not sure what is the correct solution for this problem but it severely restricts using anything from unix world??
