Open Files from BBEdit Subversion Log

When you use BBEdit's Subversion client capabilities to update the working copy of your Subversion repository, BBEdit always displays the Subversion.log file, showing any changes. If you want to work on one of the files that appears as being added or updated, just select the full pathname and choose File > Open Selection (or just hit Command-D). This trick should also work any time you see a pathname within a BBEdit document.


SITcomm shipped

Send Article to a Friend

SITcomm shipped last week, marking Aladdin Systems' first foray into the communications market after years of concentrating on utility programs. SITcomm's claims to fame are ease of use, automatic handling of logins to many different types of systems, automatic expansion and compression of files using StuffIt technology, and translation of files from non-Macintosh formats using StuffIt translators. Even better, SITcomm is scriptable and recordable with AppleScript or Frontier. Elegance abounds, from a battery-saving design for PowerBook users to one of the first available ZMODEM tools for Apple's Communications Toolbox. SITcomm requires System 7 and 2 MB of RAM and lists for $120, although you can buy it for $39 if you own another Aladdin product or for $49 if you own a competing communications program.
