xed -- Xcode text editor invocation tool.
xed [-xcwrbhv] [-l lineno] [file ...]
The xed tool launches the Xcode application and opens the given documents, or opens a new untitled document, optionally with the contents of standard in.
The options for xed are similar to those for the command-line utiltiies for other text editors: -x, --launch Launches Xcode opening a new empty unsaved file, without reading from standard input. -c, --create Creates any files in the file list that do not already exist. If used without --launch, standard input will be read and piped to the last file created. -w, --wait Wait for the files to be closed before exiting. xed will idle in a run loop waiting for a notification from Xcode when each file is closed, and will only terminate when all are closed. This is useful when invoking it from a script. -l, --line <number> Selects the given line in the last file opened. -b, --background Opens Xcode without activating it; the process that invoked xed remains in front. -h, --help Prints a brief summary of usage. -v, --version Prints the version number of xed [file...] A list of file paths. Existing files will be opened; nonexistent files will be created only if the --create flag is passed. If no files are passed, then standard input will be read and piped into a new untitled dcument (unless --launch is passed). If --create and at least one nonexistent file name is passed, the last nonexistent file will be created, filled with the standard input, and opened.
xed was introduced in Mac OS X 10.5 with Xcode 3.0. Mac OS May 22, 2019 Mac OS
