Easy unicode entry in eclipse?

I just got the JuliaDT plugin for Eclipse working - so far so good, it does support syntax coloration.

Does anyone know how to enter unicode strings by looking them up e.g. “\pi” for pi?

hex lookup works by typing CTRL+SHIFT+U,(hex id),ENTER
e.g. CTRL+SHIFT+U,3b1,ENTER becomes α
(from stack overflow)

I guess I could do the lookups and commit some numbers to memory using this table
BUT computers are good at this stuff and life is too short.

Thanks in advance!
