I just installed Sublime Text 3 beta and would like to re-associate all the filetypes I have linked to ST 2 with ST 3.

Is there any way to perform this as a batch operation?

For example:

$ open_all_with_st3 py txt tsv css scss js ...

Or better yet, get a list of all types associated with ST 2 and then assign them to ST 3.

I really don't fancy doing the Get Info->Open With->Change All … dance with dozens of filetypes.

I figured it out. I opened ~/Library/Preferences/ and replaced all occurrences of com.sublimetext.2 with com.sublimetext.3.
