Open a random file in the GUI via a bash script
Authored by: periche on Nov 14, '05 08:58:22PM
If the folder will always be the Documents folder in the home directory of the user, you could use:

tell application "Finder"
    open some document file in (path to documents folder from user domain)
end tell

This way it is trasnportable to any mac in any laguage and will always work properly for all users on a system, always using the logged user's Document Folder.
