Original Question :
How to get rid of backup file generated by textedit.
Has to write a wrapper(script) which calls textedit inside.
The following is a ksh script which has some debugging lines
inside for the ones who are not familiar with ksh. Save the
following script in your working directory and give it a
exec permission and save as textedit_NOBK (or someother name
other than textedit)
But this textedit version deletes the opened file only if
the file is opened at the command line itself like follows.
$ textedit_NOBK filename
$ textedit_NOBK filename &
If you want to work it in other cases
$ textedit_NOBK & AND then open in file menu you have to
customize the script.
