[Chimera-users] Chimera --send on MacOS

I suspect your test.com file is not found when you run "chimera
--send test.com" because the Chimera that is already running was started
in a different directory then the one test.com is in. The file is
opened by the already running chimera and so the path probably has to be
relative the directory that Chimera was started in. If you started
Chimera by clicking an icon in Mac OS then it starts in directory "/".
So you should specify a full path to "test.com" like
/Users/stricher/test.com or ~/test.com.
I think this is weird and unexpected and we should probably fix this
so that "chimera --send" converts the relative path to an absolute path
before handing it to the running Chimera.

Each time I do this, it opens a new instance (instead of reusing the previous one) and doesn't process my_file.com at all. When I open my_file.com from inside chimera, it operates the commands inside it without any problem.
