    Works nicely for me, Thanks.

    Is there a better way to do this ?

    I figure when the currently selected buddy and the location of the fifo is known a command could just fork away and mcabber could resume. Both pieces of information could be passed as commandline arguments or environment variables.

    cheers Andreas

    I can't think of a better way, unfortunately.

    Maybe, if you use screen, there could be a way to open up the editor in another screen window and send the file through the FIFO pipe. All we'd have to do is to find out how to tell screen to run a script in a new window - maybe it can be done using a FIFO as well?
