But this is setting it file by file unless I am missing the point. Is there
a way of telling it anything ending in .tex goes to TeXShop or BBEdit or
whatever ?  It seems to me that MacOSX does this sometimes with files
I download but I am not sure how you set it up.

I guess one could write an applescript to do this assuming that
particular command is applelscriptable.
