What is 'my_file'?
The terminal command 'open' looks at the filename, works out what app it
should be opened by and then launches the file in that app.
Will open 'foo.c' (as a editable text file) in Xcode on my machine.
The '--args' portion of the open command allows you to pass extra
arguments to the application which is chosen to open the file.
