I was trying to find out if there's a way to change the title of open tabs
(currently: full file name), similar to how one can change the window
title, as described in detail e.g. here:
(great read, by the way).
Since there's not equivalent to the 'windowTitle' variable in
.tm_properties, that path is not an option.
So I thought I'd be clever by manually setting whatever variable it is the
tab title relies on. Any chance that might work out?
I tried already setting static values for the obvious candidate variables
(TM_FILEPATH, TM_DISPLAYNAME), which had the expected effect on the
*window* title, but didn't affect *tab* title, which makes me think I'm on
the wrong track here.
Anyone knows the details and cares to correct my misunderstanding?
I'm a researcher studying software evolution. As part of my current
research, I'm studying the implications of open-sourcing a proprietary
software, for instance, if the project succeed in attracting newcomers.
However, I observed that some projects, like _textmate_, deleted their
Knowing that software history is indispensable for developers (e.g.,
developers need to refer to history several times a day), I would like to
ask textmate developers the following four brief questions:
1. Why did you decide to not keep the software history?
2. Do the core developers faced any kind of problems, when trying to refer
to the old history? If so, how did they solve these problems?
3. Do the newcomers faced any kind of problems, when trying to refer to the
old history? If so, how did they solve these problems?
4. How does the lack of history impacted on software evolution? Does it
placed any burden in understanding and evolving the software?
Thanks in advance for your collaboration,

When I file drop a .shp file, the cursor jumps to the line below. How can I have the cursor jump to before the <- ?
Also, once I have dropped the file into TextMate, how can I make TextMate the active window (rather than the active window being Finder)?
Attached show the file drop and the code that does the file drop
