configuring  moinmoin external editor on mac os x  isn't so simple. There is a recipe
for doing this on the original Zope External Editor's page on zope's site:


You have to follow that recipe also for moin moin external editor, but where the author
writes "Zope External Editor Helper Application" you should read "moineedit.py".

I hope this helps,
