I have used Open Terminal Here but really hate the weird flurry of mess it makes when I use it - you see text flying all about and why? Some needless perl script gets run that does all that. This is much cleaner. I confess to having copied the icon from Open Terminal Here, though, and pasting it on this script. :) The .pkg thing is no big deal to me and I think it should be fairly easy to correct for that once I get some time to mess around with the script a bit.

I don't like the ugly Perl line in my "Open Terminal Here" script either. My script actually worked like this one in an earlier version.
The reason I changed it to use Perl was to support weird directory paths. Mine will now handle almost anything you can throw at it, including the contents of packages etc.
I have a test folder called te'st"รถ te%s`t. It has all the ugly special cases in it that broke earlier versions of my script.
Glad you like my icon though :-)
