Do you mean your ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist file? This file can set
enviornment variables for you when you log into the MacOS X windowmanager.
Any application you run which needs them will see those variables you set
there. Setting variables in your dotfiles, e.g. .cshrc, only affects
things you start from the Terminal.

Dunno. I use /usr/bin/vim instead of the plist editor. Here's an example of
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist SYSTEM
