[OS X TeX] BBEdit & TextWrangler <-> TeX scripts updated

I've updated my scripts (actually, just the engine file) to match the  
change in TeXShop. You can download my TextWrangler and BBEdit from  

Some details: TeXShop previously used a line with:
     %SourceDoc master.tex
to indicate the 'master' document. This didn't cause any harm, but  
the %&encoding and friends did (or might have). For consistency  
reasons (and to keep in sync with iTeXMac, I believe), the syntax was  
changed to:
     %!TEX root = master.tex
Since the previous method (for detecting a master document) is  
harmless, it is still supported, but the new method is preferred.

The other meta-comments are ignored, but you are advised to keep  
things in sync with the other front-ends.

Best wishes,
