I'm looking for Eclipse plugin which may show something like mini-map of code. I think this may be nice feature. Here you can see example of what I mean (it's TextMap plugin for gedit).

I created one:
It's a "beta" version, feel free to give it a try.
The idea is really cool, I am not sure, whether one should use such a plugin.
If your source code files are so big that you could put such a plugin to use, it's really an indicator that you should split them up.
This obviously doesn't answer your question, but you still may want to take it into consideration, when deciding how to tackle large files.
One reason for this plugin over merely a code outline view is when code folding is used: http://i.stack.imgur.com/3ZF3N.png
Now I can easily judge the inner code outline (within a function) of only the few functions I need to modify for this change.
I am unaware of such a plugin for Eclipse, sadly, and it's one of the reasons I'm not using eclipse. (Other being overall lack of fuzzy-search.)
