So let me get this right, you are running in the Windows environment 'bubble' - 
that really has no reach into the MacOS 'bubble' except for filesystem?

If that's the case, it's going to be a real hack, but write a cron-job that 
runs often on the MacOS side of things that reads a text file and deletes it - 
opens the file in Coda. Write a windows script/executable to write the file. So 
you have a consumer/provider relationship.

It's a total hack though and probably very inefficient. I'd just use a 
Windows-based editor and get over with it :) Or use a CVS utility for Mac. I 
like Eclipse for my environment and I think it runs on a Mac. It has CVS hooks 
into the IDE.

I use Coda to edit files I work with in WinCVS .. I'm running Windows Vista 
with Parallels over Mac OSX. I'd like to be able to use the contextual menu for 
'edit with editor' to open .jsp files in Coda, on the Mac side. I know this is 
a pretty random question - any chance someone out there has figured out a 
workaround to be able to do this?
When you browse MAC applications through Windows Explorer, you can't get to an 
executable to point the shortcut to. Thanks!
