getting text from an open Ed window

    Hey dev-folk --
    I'd like to be able to access text from an open Ed window without having to close the editor window. I tried this (the "goeditor" message would trigger):
    void rtcmix_goeditor(t_rtcmix *x) { CharsHandle chand; TEHandle thand; t_ed *edit_window;
    edit_window = x->c_edit; // from ed_new() thand = (*edit_window).e_teh; chand = TEGetText(thand); post("here da text: %s", (char *)chand); }
    but it crashes on the TEGetText() call. Looking at the t_ed struct, it seems as if e_teh should be a valid TEHandle.
    Also, how can I accomplish this on Windows (if in fact it is accomplishable...)?
