Quit applications from the command line
Authored by: sabi on Jun 25, '04 06:31:52PM

You may be interested in my 'appswitch' utility ( - it quits applications efficiently among other features. There you can find my 'open' replacement, 'launch', as well.

Ahh... thanks for that appswitch reminder, Nicholas. It (and launch) are already installed. :-)

Looks like appswitch is a good substitute for killall to use in the /usr/libexec/upsshutdown script for "safe-quitting" apps like DEVONthink.
