10.4: Make any folder a burn folder
Authored by: rjbailey on Sep 24, '05 02:37:23PM
As this thread degenerates into the a lesson in shell scripting, I'll reiterate: I vastly prefer OnMyCommand for applications like this. There's no need to mess with integrating Automator and AppleScript, just this:
mv __OBJ_PATH__ __OBJ_PATH__.fpbf

and it's in a contextual menu. The reverse is just as simple:
mv __OBJ_PATH__ __OBJ_PATH_NO_EXTENSION__

And OMC offers context filtering so you'll only get folder-specific options when you right-click on folders--no need to do that logic in your applescript or shell script. There's a million other examples on the website.
