use BBEdit

a reminder. you can use other text editors to open and edit the files. I used BBEdit by launching a new instance of BBEdit via the Terminal with a sudo command. it worked perfectly.

sudo path/to/

this was great for me because I have no knowledge of the Terminal text editors; eg, pico.
