What would you like to do?
Bash command to fix a quirk with Sublime Text 2's "subl" command. Sometimes, when using it, under hard-to-pinpoint circumstances, it will open up Sublime Text 2 completely blank (i.e. the file you asked it to open will not be open). This snippet fixes that by essentially kicking subl under the table to wake it up and then passing on the command …
function subl() {
if [[ ! -p /dev/stdin ]]; then
command subl > /dev/null 2>&1
command subl "$@"

Oh man, thank you so much for this. That used to be such a PITA.
