Use launch to do this with almost any app
Authored by: sabi on Mar 31, '03 12:30:22PM
Sorry for the plug, but this might be useful for people who don't have a copy of BBEdit or have another preferred text editor. My launch tool lets you do this with any application. For example, to get your file listing in TextEdit:
% ls -l | launch -i com.apple.textedit -
The '-' at the end is important, as it causes launch to look at standard input for text. You'll probably want to make aliases which run launch on common applications, as typing the bundle identifiers can get a bit tedious.
