A script to automatically open a Terminal window to its directory
Authored by: Anonymous on Jun 28, '11 03:39:55PM

You probably have the Applescript interpreter running already. Many people don't use Applescript all that much, so using it for a single purpose like this really isn't that much of a timesaver.

A script to automatically open a Terminal window to its directory

I haven't looked into how long the AppleScript interpreter stays open, but I use it daily. Sometimes scripts are instant, other times there is a long delay before they run. If I have been running scripts, it is usually fast, but not always.

I also try to keep mostly to the keyboard, so if I need something in terminal, I usually just stay in terminal. I need this rarely enough that its faster for me to use the `cd'+drag method.
