example of use
Authored by: hayne on Dec 24, '03 02:18:09PM
This is most useful when you pipe the result of some other command to it.
ls -l | open -f
gives a new TextEdit window with the contents of the current directory.

There is no filename associated with this window since the document has not yet been saved. And in fact (this seems like a bug), TextEdit doesn't warn you if you close the window without saving.
