public interface IFileEditorInput extends IStorageEditorInput
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 org.eclipse.ui.part.FileEditorInput.
All editor inputs must implement the
extensions are managed by the platform's adapter manager.

Returns the file resource underlying this editor input.

IFile returned can be a handle to a resource
that does not exist in the workspace. As such, an editor should
provide appropriate feedback to the user instead of simply failing
during input validation. For example, a text editor could open
in read-only mode with a message in the text area to inform the
user that the file does not exist.
