Launch multiple instances of any given application
Authored by: coyote4til7 on Jul 15, '03 12:37:08PM

Hmmm... search OS X hints for the 'do shell script' syntax and stir fry:

on open theApps
repeat with anApp in theApps
myScript = anApp & " &"
do shell script myScript
end repeat
end open

Note: this should work, but I'm at my job in front of a (cough) XP box, so the script is untested. I'm looking forward to getting home and testing it. I see a new icon joining stuffit at the top of my Finder Windows...

Well you'll need a posix path, either in quotes or with escaped spaces. Otherwise, the applescript looks ok to me.
