Another way to create Finder-clickable shell scripts
Authored by: MacTed on Jul 30, '03 11:20:53PM

I tried this one, cause I like it better than the previous hint -- I can add a nice icon and other frills! -- but this failed for me...

The Finder decided that my foo.app was a Classic App, but didn't bring up the Classic Environment. My script is woefully simple -- it simply calls a Terminal-based executable -- which now launched in the background, with no user interaction...

So I'll stick to the following, as in the older hint, for now -- just change your

foo.sh

to

foo.command

and presto -- auto-launch of the Terminal, and auto-run of the script therein, complete with user interaction.
