As I’ve worked with Fedora 8 on a testing server we’ve got, I’ve really enjoyed being able to edit text files within the terminal via gedit while using KDE or Gnome.  While many “seasoned” vets use VI to edit text inside the OS X terminal, I’ve wanted to stay away from learning yet another set of commands.  Enter Terminal’s ability to call TextEdit.  It’s as simple as:

open filename  OR  open -a TextEdit filename

You just have to cd into the files directory, or provide the full path.  Same as gedit.
