All Known Implementing Classes:
public interface IFileEditorInput
This interface defines a file-oriented input to an editor.
Clients implementing this editor input interface should override
Object.equals(Object) to answer true for two inputs
that are the same. The
are dependent on this to find an editor with the same input.
File-oriented editors should support this as a valid input type, and allow
full read-write editing of its content.
A default implementation of this interface is provided by
All editor inputs must implement the

Returns the file resource underlying this editor input.
- Returns the file resource underlying this editor input.
IFile returned can be a handle to a resource
