EDITOR=bbedit -w

I fount that EDITOR='bbedit -w' fails for some purposes, either CVS or crontab -e as I recall. The solution is to make a little script like this:

bbedit -w $1

... and then use the script as your EDITOR.

'bbedit -c' isn't the default

Note also that the command line tool doesn't create non-existent files by default like most every other editor on the planet. I stuffed an 'alias bbedit bbedit -c' in my .cshrc and I'm much happier.
