I have seen many references to this issue dating all the way back to 2014, but no solutions that work for me across platforms (Linux and Windows)
How do I invoke Atom from the command line and pass it the name of a local file to edit?
When I do this in Windows, even if the file already exists in the current directory, Atom insists on creating a new file in the installation directory.
I have tried prefixing the filename with “.” but that does not work.
FWIW, passing the entire pathspec works but is very annoying for long paths.
What am I missing?
