I prepare all my printed course materials in LaTeX, but I
have other files as well: perl scripts, Keynote slides,
and pdfs.  I've put them all under CVS source control and
then used XCode to navigate them.  There is a package
that can add syntax coloring to XCode's editor.

Using CVS is not a requirement for XCode, you could
use it without CVS just fine.  I use a blank project
and just fill it with folders and files.

I've also done this with ProjectBuilder on 10.2 systems.
