Editor History


EditorHistory keep an history of the most recently visited files, so that you can jump back to them quickly even after their editors are closed. Eclipse 2.1.x now offer something similar, but this works for 2.0.x too and it remember just the files visited, not the cursor locations visited. So it would not jump around in the same file. The history is persistent. It also present a list of visited files in alphabetic order in additional to a stack in access order.
