played shortly with this, I was actually awaiting six lines

Hmm, I sent it to
Yes, that's weird -- TextDrive have had a bit of downtime the last
couple of days, but not more than at most an hour at a time AFAIK,
maybe the SMTP just caught TextDrive at that time, and will resend!?!
But I'd be glad if you'd resend the code, probably to allan(a)simplit.com
then ;) Mainly I got stuck extracting the alias from the apple event
and converting it to something useful -- but I'm not sure if the file
is always an alias, or can also be an FSRef or a plain text string/URL.
There seems to be quite a few types for files defined for apple events.
Also, I didn't look into actually sending back events to the sender,
there seems to be no cocoa support for this, so I'd have to dig into
Carbon documentation, which means, any sample code would be much
appreciated, as I'd save me time (and probably frustrations, given my
history with legacy Apple APIs ;) ).
It's actually a bit more, if you don't have AE
receivers setup, yet.
Setting up an AE receiver for odoc doesn't really help, because
NSApplication won't pass on the event, to the best of my attempts at
least -- but I can peek at the current apple event in one of the
application delegate methods to open files, this seems to be the
solution -- it's still a bit weird, cause it seems to depend a bit on
from whom the event is sent, how NSApplication treats it (i.e. I can
have the event received by a custom handler if I send it from Script
Editor, although never the first event ("naturally")).
But you're right, unless Transmit adds TextMate as
an editor, it's
pretty much moot.
I also downloaded Interachy (sp?) and at least they allow the user to
add other editors to the list. Probably some of the other ftp clients
for the Mac does that as well.
Kind regards Allan
