You don't need xemacs. xemacs is just a text editor; you can use any
you like. I use TextWrangler which is nice and free.

In the file ~/.bash_profile I have this line:

export EDITOR=editor.sh

editor.sh is a small shell script located somewhere within my path.
(On my system that's ~/scripts) The contents of the script is:

edit +1 --wait --resume "$@"

"edit" opens TextWrangler. +1 tells it to hilite the first line of
the file. --wait tells edit to wait until I save and close the file
in TextWrangler before returning control to the script. --resume
means the Terminal should come to the front when I save and close the
document in TextWrangler. (These options are specific to
TextWrangler's edit command; if you want to use a different editor,
you'll need to consult that editor's documentation.)
