Sublime Text plugin : Open the URL under the cursor

and self.view.classify(start) & sublime.CLASS_LINE_START == 0):

It is possible to get similar functionality but with files. I mean: From a text containing a path to a file with a line number like 'path/to/a/file.extension line 22' on click goto that file on that line????

Thanks.
