edit: Edit action can be used to view any file on default mailcap explorer.
$ edit ${filename}
try on your machine

The command "edit ${filename}" is not specific to a particular operating system or application, so I will provide a general explanation.

In this command, "${filename}" is a placeholder for an actual filename or filepath. It signifies that you need to replace "${filename}" with the name of the file you want to edit.

The command itself represents an instruction to open or modify a file using an editor program. By executing this command, you are telling the system to launch the default or assigned text editor and open the file specified by "${filename}" for editing.

The specific behavior or outcome of this command can vary depending on the context in which it is used. For instance, different operating systems may have different default editors, and various applications might interpret the command differently.

To execute this command, you would typically open a command prompt or terminal, enter "edit ${filename}" (replacing "${filename}" with the actual file name or filepath), and press enter.

This explanation was created by an AI. In most cases those are correct. But please always be careful and never run a command you are not sure if it is safe.
