Show and hide apps from the command line
Authored by: MordEth on Apr 01, '04 04:16:23PM

some additional notes, after playing with it a bit can escape apps with spaces like "microsoft word" like "microsoft\ word" rather than having to quote it. (i.e. "hide microsoft\ word".)

also, for anyone who's interested, i've posted a somewhat rewritten version of the "super_hide" script at basically, the main difference is that the name of the script by itself returns the script's syntax, and contains a variable named $FINDER. it is written for Path Finder users, but if you use Apple's Finder instead, you can either delete the line:

FINDER="Path Finder"

and replace all instances of "$FINDER" with "Finder", or just change "Path Finder" in the variable to "Finder".
