Another way to create Finder-clickable shell scripts

I'm pretty sure he means it's run from the root directory, not as root. That's why he mentions absolute paths...

e.g. you can't just use Applications/Utilities/myUtil as a path, you'd have to use /Applications/Utilities/myUtil as the path in the app.
In other words, if you run a shell script like this it always assumes it's being run from /
