Mac OS X "This is the problem: You want to open a file using something other than the default application. You right-click its icon in the Finder, choose Open With, and a submenu pops up with an absurd number of duplicate entries." This is so annoying. Dr. Dang made a little addition to .bashrc so you can fix it with a single command. Now it's up to Apple to actually fix the problem (via Daring Fireball).

Isn't tcsh the default shell?
In which case the alias would be placed in ~/.tcshrc and the = replaced with a space, ie
alias fixopenwith '<rest/goes/here>'

Etiennes-MacBook-Pro-2:~ etienne$ echo $SHELL
/bin/bash
Etiennes-MacBook-Pro-2:~ etienne$ which tcsh
/bin/tcsh

The defaut is Bash, but you can use tcsh if you want to.

Tcsh hasn't been the default shell for OS X since at least 10.2, if I remember correctly. It is my preferred shell though, and fortunately it's still there without having to install any additional packages.
