Subject: Re: Launching an already open file
To: Ben Schmidt <mail_ben_schmidt@...
Thanks for the <CR> pointer. it was driving me nuts that I kept having
to hit CR after fn+F7+CR. Then I saw in :map that a bunch of key
bindings are defined with <CR> and some even with <CR><CR>,
experimented with both, and decided on the latter.
I'm making some progress. StataMP will respond to this:
!rm -Rf ~/Library/Saved*/com.stata*
!osascript -e 'tell app "StataMP" to open "%:p"'
:map <F7> :<C-U>call RunIt()<CR><CR>
:imap <F7> <Esc>:<C-U>call RunIt()<CR><CR>
But it will not actually do the do-file (that is, execute it
verbosely). Instead, it opens it for editing in its own editor. Still,
I get no error messages, no hangs, and RunIt() can be launched as many
times as needed. It won't open another instance of Stata, which is
good. Now I only need to figure out the Apple event that will
interpret "tell app to open" as "make app execute it" instead of "make
app edit it" when app=StataMP.
