Capture command line output directly to a text file
Authored by: rspress on Jul 29, '08 09:26:02AM
He was talking about Tiger which has a little different usage of the open command.

To open a file in a textedit document you use:

system_profiler | open -e -f

the one listed in the main hint does not work under tiger.

To open a directory listing in textedit you would use:

ls | open -e -f
