Eclipse trouble? This solves 80% of plugin issues.

If you're using Eclipse and are having plugin problems, be it you think you installed one and it isn't showing up, or you are having some kind of conflict, or an older version is coming back from the dead, there's one easy fix that will solve it most of the time.

Eclipse.exe -clean

That's all it takes. Eclipse will take a few extra seconds to start up as it cleans its plugin cache.

How do you do this on a Mac?

Sean, looks like in terminal (or iTerm, which all the cool kids are using) you can cd to /Applications/eclipse and ./eclipse --clean

Eclipse started with a delay and no complaint, so I assume it worked.
