Sometimes it’s useful to be able to open the file you’re editing in Emacs in an external program. For instance – you might be editing some HTML file and you might want to see how is it looking in a browser. I use the following handy command to do so:

On OSX it would use the
open program to decide which program to open
the file with, otherwise you’d be prompted to enter the name of the
program in the minibuffer.
I find it convenient to bind the command to
This command is naturally part of Emacs Prelude.
