Yes. In ProjectBuilder/Xcode, you can execute a shell command in the 
Edit window by the shortcut ctr-R and run a shell script on the 
entire/selected text in the edit window. The same features will be 
available to any standard Cocoa app like TextEdit and SubEthaEdit if 
you have installed TextExtras.

I find it very useful especially because it is painful -- sometimes 
impossible -- to edit a command containing Japanese characters in 
Terminal. Both bash and tcsh do not display them properly if the 
command is longer than a single line.
