public interface IFileMatchAdapter
This interface serves to map matches to
IFile instances. Changes to those
files are then tracked (via the platforms file buffer mechanism) and matches
updated when changes are saved. Clients who want their match positions
automatically updated should return an implementation of
IFileMatchAdapter from the
method in their search result implementation. It is assumed that the match
adapters are stateless, and no lifecycle management is provided.
Clients may implement this interface.
