SubEthaEdit: "see" your files

I love this new features in the latest release of SubEthaEdit: It installs a shell command, see, which lets you open up files from the command line by just typing see myfile.rb (or some other file—you get the picture).

Now could we get the same thing for TextMate, please? That would be really useful, since I’m always working in both TextMate and the shell at the same time, and if I need to edit a particular file, it would typically be faster to just open the file from the shell, than to grab the mouse and click-expand/scroll around the folders tree to locate and open it.

I know that I can say open file.name, if that file is already associated with TextMate, but it opens in a separate window, not as part of my project. It would be nice with a command that just always opens TextMate, regardless of associations.

And when you make this feature, make sure you check if the file is already included in one of my open projects, and open it there, not in a separate window.

Thanks! :)

Thanks. It still opens it up in a separate window, though, and not in the projec that I already have open, even though the file is part of that project ...

Thank you very much, Torsten. I particularly like the ability to pipe text into it, that's a very useful alternative to less and friends. Cool.
