Dear Nick,

thanks a lot for your suggestion. Two slight modifications were necessary
to make things work.
Here is the code:

program winedt
      version 8
      * discard
      if "`*'" != "" local file "`c(pwd)'/`*'"
      winexec "D:\Programme\WinEdt\WinEdt.exe" `file'
end

If I'll ever work out how to set everything up properly in WinEdt, I'd be
glad to contribute.
Best wishes,
Eva
