Openning Project And Restoring Previous Files

Is there any way using Eclipse to open a project after I've closed it and have the files I was previously working on come back up in the perspective? I've been wondering if it was possible and how to do it for a while now.

Eclipse doesn't do that today and I don't know of a plug-in that adds that feature (with so many out there, there may well be one). I don't think it would be particularly difficult if you want to give it a try (add a part listener, add a resource listener, record the open / closes, etc). I would expect that it isn't really much different than the n-last open editors under the File menu.
Not a bad exercise for learning plug-ins. Mind if I borrow it?
