Strife25 Posted July 15, 2008 Share Posted July 15, 2008 Hi Everyone, I thought that this might be a fun little rank to play on your developer friends who use the Eclipse IDE. Basically, we want to start the application in mirror mode from the user's normal shortcut on their desktop. This can only be done is the user has set up a GUI shortcut for the application and does not normally boot it from the console. So when you start eclipse with the following argument: Windows: eclipse.exe -dir rtl Linux: ./eclipse -dir rtl It will start eclipse in right-to-left mode to let users who use Arabic or Hebrew for their language to be readable. But using it this way just flips the GUI the other way with english still as the language. If you set up the user's normal GUI shortcut with the -dir rtl argument, eclipse will always boot up in mirror mode. A simple prank, but confusing people tends to always bring some sort of fun. :) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
