Create a clickable Mozilla Mail application
Authored by: jammjamm on Dec 30, '04 02:51:49PM

You can also

* Create a text file with your script in it

* chmod +x it to make it executable

* name the file with a ".command" extension -- this allows a shell script to be run by double-clicking, otherwise, you need to drag and drop in into the terminal.

* When you double-click the ".command" shell script file, Terminal will launch and run the script

I made a script like this to launch the Firfox Profile Manager:
#!/bin/sh
/Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox -profilemanager

The .command extension trick has the drawback that Terminal.app is launched which is quite ugly. This is circumvented with Platypus. If you want to give the user feedback when something goes wrong you can use CocoaDialog.
