Yes, you can run the command 'wing myfile.py' to do this using the 
'wing' that is inside the Contents/MacOS directory within the 
WingIDE.app bundle.  You may want to create a symlink to that so you're 
not stuck typing the full path 
/Applications/WingIDE.app/Contents/MacOS/wing (or wherever you've placed 
it) on the command line.
