Ah, yes, I now remember that David had sent me that function a long time ago and it’s different than the one in the wiki now. I have
(defun dired-open-mac ()
(let ((file-name (dired-get-file-for-visit)))
(if (file-exists-p file-name)
(call-process "/usr/bin/open" nil 0 nil file-name))))
Alas the new version seems to given an error in directories whose names involve 8-bit characters, even though dired works well. But at least it gives an error (file not found) since it gets the name of the folder wrong.
I’d appreciate any pointers…
