Eclipse not picking modified files that where change outside eclipse...

    Is there a way to have Eclipse watch for modified files that were
    modified outside Eclipse?

    For example, a file is modified by another editor than Eclipse. When
    the modfication happens I want Eclipse to update its cache, compile,
    ect... *without* going to the "Navigator" in Eclipse and doing a right
    mouse click then "Refresh"...

    If Eclipse cannot do it, is there a plugin that will watch the
    directory?

    Thank you

    How about the appropriately-named "Refresh Automatically" setting?
