Eclipse Simpletest plug-in Path errors

I struggled with this one until through experimentation I found out the problem. I have the Simpletest plug-in 0.2.5 for Eclipse.

I had

require_once dirname(__FILE__) . '\MyClass.php';
class test extends UnitTestCase {
function test_pass(){
$tc = new MyClass();
$boolean = $tc->my_method() == "hello";

But when running, I kept getting:

PHP Fatal error: Class 'MyClass' not found in ...test.php...[line number]

I finally found out through trial and error that to fix this fatal error I simply needed to replace the opening short tag with the full php tag <?php . That means I'm going to need to do this to all my class files. Might as well make that a best practice from now on.
