Provides the API for accessing file buffers.
File buffers represent a file that is being edited. Text file buffers are
specific for text files. They represent the content of a text file in form of
IDocument and and associated
IAnnotationModel. File buffers are managed by
a file buffer manager. The
org.eclipse.core.filebuffers plug-in provides a default
file buffer manager that can be obtained by calling
The file buffer manager supports listeners,
IFileBufferListener, that are informed about all relevant
state changes of file buffers as well as their creation and disposal.
