Sujet n°12 Problem with TextEdit / Mac OS X

Thanks very, very much for this extension.  I'm having some trouble using it, though.

In Mac OS X 10.3.9, I tried using TextEdit as an external editor, but I got the following error:  "ExtEditor: Cannot run executable",
with the following details:

[Exception: "Component returned failure code: 0x80004005
(NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [nsIProcess.init]"

and a location: "JS frame :: chrome://exteditor/content/exteditor.js :: extEditorRunProgram :: line 596"

I also tried this extension in WinXP Home SP2, using gVim as the external editor.  It worked, but I'm going to need to try playing with some more, because I really need to be able to run gVim (or maybe VIM in an Xterm window) in a Cygwin context.  Right now, if I launch gVim as an external editor and try doing "!!some_command" stuff in gVim, it will only run DOS commands, not Cygwin commands.

So, it looks promising, but not quite what I need -- at least, not yet.

It's because 'this' TextEdit is not the real executable file. It's just a folder named Use the terminal and go look inside. The executable you should call in the extension is:

But this is not a good editor to be used with my extension: after you edited your file, you need to quit TextEdit for the extension to get the modified message. You'd better find a gvim OS X version smile.

On Windows, you're right. Go ahead with Cygwin, it's the only way to feel good with this os, IMO.

Thanks for the help with getting TextEdit to work as an external editor in Mac OS X.  I agree completely, TextEdit is definitely not a good editor to use with this extension.  The only reason I used it for my initial test was because it was already on my Mac.

I would be grateful for any suggestions on how to make this extension launch gVim in a Cygwin context on my WinXP PC.

I can tell you what I do to launch NEdit in Windows using Cygwin. Then, you should be able to change the scri­pts to adapt it to gvim.

I actually launch nedit.bat with the file as a parameter.


IF '%1'=='' GOTO EMPTY

IF '%1'=='' GOTO END
D:\cygwin\bin\sh.exe /cygdrive/c/nedit/ %1

D:\cygwin\bin\sh.exe /cygdrive/c/nedit/


This .bat calls
I highlighted the important parts.


# Hide the command window:
/cygdrive/c/nedit/hidewndw  /n /fh "C:\WINDOWS\System32\cmd.exe"  # when dragging a file on the NEdit icon
/cygdrive/c/nedit/hidewndw  /n /fh "NEdit"  # when double-click the NEdit icon

# to find the display
export DISPLAY=

# specify a home directory, NEdit needs it to store its preference files
export HOME=/cygdrive/c/nedit

# this is a new variable. when set, NEdit stores its preference files
# in this directory under the new names 'nedit.rc' (previous name '.nedit')
# and `autoload.nm' (previous name '.neditmacro')
export NEDIT_HOME=/cygdrive/c/nedit/neditrc

# for the keyboard, isn't always necessary
export XKEYSYMDB=/cygdrive/c/nedit/xkeysymdb

# to find the cygwin1.dll, shell commands, X libraries
export PATH=/cygdrive/c/nedit:/cygdrive/c/cygwin/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin/:"$­PATH"

# if you bind NEdit to file extensions, you should start your X server here
# to make sure not to forget to start it before NEdit!
# For example "/cygdrive/c/path-to-server/xserver &"
/cygdrive/c/Program\ Files/myXserver/xserver.exe &

# handling calls with multiple files, files and path names with empty spaces and
# upper-case - lower-case difference
if [ "$­1" != "" ]
    if [ "$­1" = "-wait" ]
        opt="$­opt $­1"
    # since under Windows there is o difference between small and capital
    # letters, but NEdit sees a difference internally, the file name and
    # path get translated to all lower-case
    filename=`cygpath -u "$­filename" | tr A-Z a-z`
    nc $­opt "$­filename"

Not so easy, is it ?cool
