/Fish 3.1

open - open file in its default application

Synopsis

open FILES...

Description

open opens a file in its default application, using the appropriate tool for the operating system. On GNU/Linux, this requires the common but optional xdg-open utility, from the xdg-utils package.

Note that this function will not be used if a command by this name exists (which is the case on macOS or Haiku).

Example

open *.txt opens all the text files in the current directory using your system's default text editor.
