starting os X apps from command line
Authored by: mingking on Dec 22, '02 09:26:59PM
I downloaded vim from this site and it worked fine. Launched using 'open -a vim' while the app is still in a folder on the Desktop and never having been in my Applications folder. Is this the one your were having troubles with? If you want to use the X version of vim you will need to install XDarwin, but that doesn't seem necessary given the Carbonized version that is available from the above link. And of course you could make an alias to that command in your shell if you'd like to make launching it a bit easier.
