- edit-properties alistprocedure
Formats alist to a temporary file and spawns the user's preferred editor on it. If the editor exits with a zero error level, the file is parsed back into a new association list having keywords for keys and returned.
If the editor exits with a non-zero error, edit-properties returns #f.
The editor is sought in the following order:
- $EDITOR, if set.
- $VISUAL, if set.
