Project Status

The current version of the script works fine but doesn't use any application registries on Unix, rather starts nedit for text files, gv (ghostscript) for .ps and .pdf files and passes everything else to OpenOffice by running "soffice".

This does the job on my environments but will most certainly cause problems on other setups. The proper solution would be to search for central and user-specific application registries as defined by typical Unix desktops such as Motif-based desktops, Gnome, KDE, etc.

On Windows, PYunzip starts cmd.exe which in turn uses the registry to find out which program to run for a particular file type.

In case this doesn't work for you, please feel free to change the code as appropriate and send it back to me to have it included into the scipt.
