  • I attacked the same problem from a slightly different angle. Assuming I'm already logged in to 'remotehost' via ssh, I want to be able to type:

    vi somefile

    and have the 'right thing' happen automatically. In my case, the right thing is for a message to be sent back to my workstation which responds by opening a GUI editor window using this command:

    gvim scp://remotehost//path/to/somefile

    I used SSH port forwarding to supply the back channel for sending the messages and named the result bcvi - back-channel vi [perlmonks.org].
