Use a free program to simplify dragging from Terminal
Authored by: Lliwynd on Aug 29, '07 08:50:08PM

Hi all,

Yes, as I noted in the original submission text, you can use 'open'. As I and others have also noted, this has its own problems.

I didn't know about marsneedswomen. I was amazed that something like this didn't already exist. Now I know that it did, but I didn't find it. My app still has the advantage of being free/open source. And this hint exists as a forum for duscussion of other solutions.

Regarding the 'spaces in filenames' issue. I don't want to turn MacOSXhints into a support forum. I've already had someone send me patches, so hopefully that will work pretty well. I'll try and get to that next week.

There are other things on my TODO list, like make the window that gets opened have the file name in its title...
