Open a Terminal window at current Finder selection
Authored by: taxi on Mar 11, '05 02:45:33AM

I don't like how long it takes for an AppleScript to start up, and then execute, then quit.

Take the code that is being run, and add the following above it:

#! /bin/sh
osascript <<END

and the word END on it's own line below it, and save it to a text file, which ends in .app (rather than .txt).

Now, the script starts almost instantly. No bouncing Dock icon. Much nicer. Might write this up as a hint of it's own...

Naming the osacript with a ".app" suffix as indicated by taxi did not produce the intended result. The file is interpreted to be a Classic application and when double clicked a message comes up that the Classic environment is no longer supported.

How do I get this file to launch correctly?
