I can't think of a particularly elegant way to do this particular  
task, but perhaps you could give us some more general idea of what  
you would like to do in general? The way I would create  files with  
given names is probably by calling the `mate` command line too,  
providing it the path to the filename. For instance, doing `mate  
thisfile.tex` will create a new file in the current directory, named  
thisfile.tex, and open it for editing in textmate. This command could  
be called from within TextMate commands, so we could do something  
potentially useful to you, but not exactly what you describe very  
easily. What could be done is, looking at your first line and finding  
it to be a filename, create a new file with that filename and write  
in it everything that the current document contains. But the current  
document will still sort of remain there.

So basically there's a lot of things that can be done similar to what  
you are trying to do, which might help you solve your original  
problem, which we could perhaps suggest if we knew what your actual  
goal is. In other words, I would suggest asking us a slightly more  
general question, describing your overall goal.
