[OS X TeX] Re: OzTeX can't find BBEdit

For those OzTeX users who can't or don't want to rebuild their desktop(s)
>from OS 9, there is another almost-as-good solution.  Add some lines like
these to your Local config file's OzTeX-only section:

extra_tools = $c "unix,quiet open -a 'BBEdit 6.5' %f,BBEdit,tex"
command_keys = $c Edit,Ed Tools,BBEdit,e

The extra_tools line assumes the name of the BBEdit app is "BBEdit 6.5"
so you'll probably have to change that (maybe even supply the full path).
If it doesn't work then remove "quiet " to see the error message.

The command_keys line removes cmd-E from the Edit menu and assigns
it to the new BBEdit item in the Tools menu.

The only disadvantage of this solution is that it isn't used if you
type "e" in response to a TeX error.
