Another way to create Finder-clickable shell scripts
Authored by: trekan on Jul 31, '03 07:47:10AM
Oh yeah... if you want to use the script in my example, I would recommend:

export tempdir=/Users/username/sometempdir
export date=$(date +'%Y%m%d-%H%M') ls $tempdir >> /var/logs/savedfiles.txt
tar czf /Users/username/$date.tgz $tempdir rm $tempdir/*

this script creates a tar-gzipped file with the date as the name in the home directory of the user username. It appends the list of files to the file /var/logs/savedfiles.txt and removes the files from the original directory
