1)If you uncheck Options->Configure->Use Internal edit <or viewer>
MC will use whatever editor or view that your system environment
is set to. I've used vim this way for many years.
2)You can launch pretty much anything from MC:
Example: you have a file called chris_glur.pl that you want to edit
with emacs =>
a)at the MC command line type "emacs " ## without the quotes!
b)select chris_glur.pl in MC
d)Optionally " &"
3)Here's the working line from a very simple bash script named 'gvm
vim -g -geom -0+0 -S $1
Using 2) I can bring up an entire programming project
4)Using mailcap or ~.mailcap, you can further customize lauching
and number of system services,, media players, etc.
I even lauch Open Office from MC - it is my File Manager.
I don't believe that this is exactly what you are looking for but, I hope
that is something here for you.
