I asked about getting skim to work as a default viewer from within Aquamacs.   Peter Dyballa kindly replied:

> Use texdoc! It can be configured to use a particular application for a particular file type. And it has the option --just-view to find a file in the current working directory instead of somewhere in the TeX distribution.

I don't understand the answer.  I'm not trying to configure texdoc.  I'm trying to configure the viewer that Aquamcs uses for previewing.

BTW, I tried
agw at home:fred2$ texdoc skim
texdoc info: No exact match, trying full search mode.
Sorry, no documentation found for skim.
If you are unsure about the name, try searching CTAN's TeX catalogue at

Looking through the texdoc manual (texdoc texdoc), I decided to try
agw at home:fred2$ texdoc --just-view
texdoc error: unknown option: --just-view

What am I missing here?   Thanks once again!
