    Default Java Project

    Hi

    I've recently produced an assignment at University, whereas I'd been using eclipse on both Windows, Mac and Linux OS, to complete the project. I submitted it in Linux, in a zipped folder(source code). However, I unzipped the file later on(out of curiosity) and opened the source code in eclipse(Windows OS), most of the code was present, however in some of the classes it was unreadable symbols, i.e...

    Is the problem repeatable? What happens if you zip/send/unzip again? What happens if you zip/send/unzip a normal plain text file?
