10.3: Create text files with enhanced open command
Authored by: liquidgood on Dec 24, '03 03:35:09PM

i tried this and i got a text file in /tmp/501/TemporaryItems/ called 3C033808-3650-11D8-8790-0003939B3DF4-1626-000003B1FF08D1CD.txt.
it appears to save the text file and then open it, at least for me (running 10.3.2).

10.3: Create text files with enhanced open command
Authored by: sabi on Dec 25, '03 04:12:34PM
If you are using an editor which supports stationery (BBEdit, Tex-Edit Plus, etc.) you may find the behavior of my launch utility more useful; it writes a stationery text file and opens it, so it shows up as an untitled document rather than getting a gigantic long UUID name.

Use it as:

ls -l | launch -
