Sometimes, on a Mac, I have a Python file
I might be in Emacs looking at that file, and I wish I could open it with: open -a wingide
Or, alternately, I wish I could double-click on the file and have it open in Wing IDE. In Emacs dired mode, I have a silly function od that opens the current directory in the Mac Finder, which is how I'd get to something deeply nested quickly in order to double-click on it.
(defun od ()
"Open current directory (Mac)"
(shell-command "open ."))
I find that if I use any of these techniques, or the command-line scripts I found in:
WingIDE will start up, but the file I want to look at hasn't been opened, requiring me to go digging for it. I was wondering if someone has found an elegant way of doing this.
The only other thing I can think of is copying the value of (buffer-file-name) in Emacs to the pasteboard so that (hopefully) WingIDE can pick it up in an open-file dialog as a paste.
