        I think that if you remove the "creator code" (and you can leave
the "type code" alone), you can set the system to open the file according
to the .tex extension.

        I know you can make a drag-and-drop utility to do this with
FileTyper in Mac OS 9 and probably in classic.

        I recently saw a command line script that would do this type of
thing in Mac OS X on one of the other X mailing lists, but I didn't save it.

        Additionally, there are a few Mac OS X utilities to set the various
file parameters like type/creator codes, but I don't know if any of them
will do batch jobs or if they only work one file at a time.
