"Every file type" is the problem. RCDefaultApp reports that there are
about *50* different extensions associated with BBEdit and XCode. I
don't want to go through and manually change every one of those
mappings. And what happens if I install yet another editor or, say, a
new version of BBEdit? I'll have to go back and change all those
associations *again*. Surely there's an easier way? I guess I could
always resort to writing some AppleScript, assuming that would work...
I suppose I'm also asking the broader question of why apps like
TextMate/BBEdit/etc. have to associate themselves with anything to
begin with. For example, when I install two C++ editors, they fight
for the .cc association, and I guess whichever one is installed last
wins. Seems like a rather weak way of managing file associations.
