I have an editor that knows how to process files with names like:
javacore.20110204.083723.6016.0005.txt

I'd like to associate it with files that start with the pattern javacore.*

How would I go about doing this?

I know that I can associate my editor with complete file names, or with file extensions, but I don't know how to match on a pattern.

I read about using content types, but my impression was that the files would need to opened, and I didn't want to incur that expense.

Gary,

I think those are all that's available. Content types are generally
computed and cached so need to be recomputed only when the contents change.

Eclipse Memory Analyzer with the IBM Diagnostic Tool Framework has an association for javacore files.

The association is defined by the IBM DTFJ plugin, and matches on the file extension and a binary signature describer matching the first few bytes of the file.

Nice plug for DTFJ Smile

Thanks, that confirms Ed's comment that there is no way to do this short of opening up the file.
