Launch applications by name using Applescript
Authored by: subrama6 on Jan 21, '04 01:52:30PM

recently switched from windows but had a lot of linux experience too, and liked the idea of having a terminal open. if you have a terminal open all the time like i do, another alternative is available here http://resexcellence.com/hack_html_01/10-10-01.shtml. it is essentially a shell script that parses the /Applications folder and makes a file with an alias for each entry. set your login file (.tschrc for me) to source script file on a new terminal session and you're all set. i've found this indispensable for keeping my desktop free and clear. no need for hotkeys, nor for paying for launchbar.
