After finding out how close to impossible it is to write a command line
tool that uses the ODB Editor Suite, and figuring out how I can detect
if the URL request originates from within TM's web preview (to not
perform dangerous operations requested from outside TM) I'm also
convinced that this URL scheme is a good idea, and it's likely to
appear in 1.1b1.
The syntax will be:
The arguments are optional and in the future I may think of other
commands than “open”.
With this I'll also let the command output be to HTML views, which btw
takes care of the in-app man-browser that has been requested, since the
command would then just be:
GROFF_TYPESETTER=html man -t $TM_CURRENT_WORD
With output set to HTML :)
