Thanks to everyone for the help.
Vlad, regarding Your question, what I am planning is
for an erlang program to open an editor, so the user
can edit some configuration data in their favorite
When the user has finished editing my app will get the
data and act on it.
It would be cool if I could get the edited text in the
reply from os:cmd(), but for now I will just read the
file again when os:cmd returns.
